INSTRUCTIONAL WRITING (AGES 5-15)
The Instructional Writing Workshops, for ages 5-15, ensure that the students are correctly integrating what they learned in the CORE class into their writing samples. Participants, of all ages, are brought "back to basics" by rebuilding their skills … one-word-at-a-time. Students are taught strategies for organizing their thoughts and transposing them into grammatically-correct and non-repetitive sentences that more closely resemble the profound depth of their minds and emotions. Skill areas covered include: grammar, syntax, orthography, structured brainstorming, collaborative writing, advanced vocabulary building and integration, fine editing, idea sequencing and summarization, data research and collection, essay writing, creative writing, journalism and factual content reports. Improvement can be easily identified after the first class.
