Middle & Secondary School: Writing Enhancement


Middle &  Secondary School: Writing Enhancement Course

Course Overview
This eight-week course is the second of two courses focusing on “boosting the basics” at the middle school level.

Middle School Writing Enhancement emphasizes the technical parts of writing such as comma and semi-colon placement, compound sentences, words often confused, and capitalization. These are the areas where many good, young writers who have creative talent often need reinforcement.

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.
