This dynamic class is perfect for seventh or eighth grade students. Students will review and will build upon their grammar knowledge. Students will learn how to conduct research, craft a thesis, create an outline, and write an essay. Students are actively engaged in the writing process and are supported at every step. Each student receives personal feedback on his papers so he can learn and grow as a writer. This course blends well with Literature for the Middle School Student to create a complete language arts block. Students should plan on spending 4 hours a week on homework for this course.  If needed, this class can easily be converted to a digital course by using Google Classroom and Zoom. It is helpful if your child has his/her own email account for that format. 

Prerequisites: All students should possess basic keyboarding skills.

Seventh graders who have taken a formal grammar/composition class should enroll in this course. This is the second in our series of middle school grammar/composition courses. If you are unsure which grammar/composition your 7th grader should take, please contact me before enrolling. 

Textbook information will be emailed to you in June. 

Tuition: $285 a semester or $550 a year.
