Introducing Two New High School Writing Classes
The ability to write clearly and concisely becomes more important in high school than ever before. If your children need a refresher course on the basics, then enroll them in High School G.U.M. (Grammar, Usage, Mechanics). This class covers the technical areas of writing that high school students need to master before moving on to paragraphs and essays.
And when they do move on to paragraphs, we have just the class: High School Paragraphs. This course focuses on paragraphs as the fundamental unit of essays and reports. Students will learn the parts of the paragraph (topic, supporting, and concluding sentences) and the types of paragraphs (narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive).
