Made With You in Mind
Got writing resistance? The Middle School Writing series offers maximum flexibility! Your kids will pick both the project topic AND format that suits them best.
Our instructors offer warm, supportive, creative feedback that will walk your kids from the initial topic choice through to the finished report.
Some of the benefits of this class include:
- Professional development for YOU. You’ll observe experienced teacher feedback to help you become a better writing coach for your kids.
- Research skills. Students practice research skills and learn how to properly identify credible sources.
- Embracing inter-connectedness. We hone skills in writing across the curriculum, narrowing chosen subjects, and determining subtopics.
- Critical thinking. Students determine what is relevant, searching for appropriate details to support their hypothesis.
Let your kids delve into the bigger curiosities they’ve been pondering—in writing!
What about formats?
Do we want middlers to start navigating formats? Yes! Are they ready for essays? No.
That’s why we start with smaller, more accessible formats first. We want them to understand that a format in writing acts as a container for the original thoughts that the writer brings to the topic.
In Middle School Writing: Science Projects, they’ll get to try formats out!
We offer students five format options for their project:
- Newspaper Article
- Science Fair Entry
- Photo Album
The ones they don’t choose? Print out the guidelines from the classroom and do the rest at your leisure! Next month’s writing curriculum--check!
