Description: This writing skills class will introduce the student to writing keyword outlines and then transforming that outline into the writing of a paragraph.  Style elements that make the writing more varied and interesting will be modeled and taught.  Writing materials from the Excellence in Writing program by Andrew Pudewa will be provided and used.  Basic punctuation, grammar, and proofreading practice are included in this class.  A three-paragraph report will be an assignment during the second semester, as well as writing new stories from old fables and from pictures.  Parent involvement is essential for greatly increasing student success.  Weekly homework assigned of about 1-2 hours, with the goal of keeping writing fun!  It works!
