Introduction to Writing for Grades 3-5 (11:00)
Course: Introduction to Writing for Grades 3-5
Instructor: Shelley Campbell
Curriculum: Developed by the instructor.
Homework Description: Writing assignments (approximately 30 minutes per week)
Duration: 26 weeks
Course Description: This class offers a smorgasbord of writing opportunities. We will work on writing complete sentences, paragraphs, essays, narrative pieces, stories and poetry. My goal is to meet students where they are in their writing journeys and help them grow from there. We will practice by reading high quality picture books during class, training ourselves to read like writers. Students will then practice writing, employing the tactics used by the authors whose work we are reading. While we will work on strategies to strengthen the overall quality of students’ writing, the focus of this class will be on process over product. My goal is for students to come to enjoy writing and develop increasing confidence in their abilities to express their own thoughts and ideas through writing!
