Middle School Writing Lessons in Basic Mechanics
There are two middle school writing lessons in basic mechanics. The first writing class teaches students how to write sentences correctly by learning the difference between a complete sentence, a fragment, and a run-on sentence. Students will also learn to distinguish between plural and possessive nouns, understand how to make subjects and verbs agree, and learn to use correct capitalization rules.
Middle School Writing Lessons in Advanced Mechanics
The second set of middle school writing classes is in advanced mechanics. This course helps students enhance their writing skills by understanding and using punctuation to create different types of sentences, as well as compound sentences. Students will also learn about verb forms and how to properly use adjectives and adverbs in their middle school writing assignments.
Middle School Writing Class about Paragraphs
Clear and precise paragraphs form the basis of effective writing. In Time4Writing’s third writing course for middle school, students will learn to write meaningfully with expository, narrative, and descriptive paragraphs. Our interactive paragraph writing curriculum will help students understand and create topic and closing sentences with supporting details in between.
Middle School Writing Instruction for Essays
With writing prompts your child can identify with (an event in their life) and be creative (the most disgusting meal they’ve ever eaten), your child will learn from and enjoy our introductory middle school essay writing class. Throughout the course, students will write expository and narrative essays based on real-life experiences as well as research-based topics.
In our advanced middle school essay writing course, students will learn to find their voice and write according to different types of media (news, internet, theater, and more). Students will use fun writing prompts to create persuasive and informative essays as well as write an internet home page and a script.
