Middle & Secondary School Essay Writing

MS2 Middle & Secondary School: Welcome to the Essay Course Overview

Students enjoy learning to write when they have stimulating writing assignments, timely feedback, and are provided with a writing process which helps them.

Students learn structure that helps them express themselves in writing narrative and expository essays.  With writing assignments such as “please describe the most disgusting meal that you’ve ever eaten”, this course will strengthen your student’s ability to write a well structured effective essay.

I appreciate your patience in helping Chris develop his writing this summer, and I know his teacher will, as well. This course is exactly what was needed to keep up his momentum. -Chrissy L.
