The ability to think critically and communicate effectively and confidently is crucial for success in relationships, career and life in general. My advanced English Language Communication classes are designed to help students master the art of language through thinking deeply and communicating effectively in speaking and writing.
The majority of my students are promoted to advanced ELA classes in school and some are chosen for leadership positions, standing out as strong thinkers, strong speakers and strong writers.
My classes are 75 minutes and are interactive, focusing on practical application and effective usage of the language arts concepts learned.
Student notebooks are used for in class and out of class assignments . Homework includes ELA standards, SAT vocabulary word studies and writing and editing assignments.
Students' works of exceptional writing will be featured on my website and published in my newsletter.
*A live online Honors Language and Composition class is being offered to home educated high school students for credit. Class meets Tuesdays, 2:45-4:00.
COMING SOON! The Art of Language Digital Academy for educators
Most students don't like writing and feel that their writing skills are poor. But we can change that!
This hands on small group class focuses on understanding and communicating the English language through writing.
We begin by learning the history, structure and artistry of language communication then move on to study the main genres of writing while focusing on the language arts elements that make each unique and beautiful.
Students will compose original works, imitating the models studied while strengthening their language usage and writing skills.
The art of editing and paraphrasing are areas of focus to help the students develop and refine their unique writing voiceprint.
