Summer and Fall Classes

youwritingteacher is pleased to offer once again the SUMMER BOOT CAMP, a 12-day intensive writing course.

Summer Writing Boot Camp

A 12-day intensive writing course at my home in Azle. The content is a mix between 1.75 and 2.0 and focuses on developing support, organizing essays, and proper sentence structure.

The class starts Wed., June 12, Thurs, June 13 and then runs Mon-Thurs the weeks of June 17 and June 24 and finishes up Mon, July 1 and Tue, July 2. Class time is 10-11;30 a.m. each day of class.

Location: 100 Timber Cross Ct, Azle, 76020   Cost: $100 ( One-time price reduction)

Parents and younger siblings may wait quietly in my home while class is in session or take advantage of our great library just 4 minutes from my house.

Fall Classes–Preview (plans should be finalized by May 10th–please check back)

Writing Class, probably 1.75. I have had requests for both Writing 1.75 and Writing 2.0, but at this moment the need seems greater for 1.75. (ages 13 and up)

Advanced Writing Class, 2.5, registration by placement only. This hour-long class is for students who have already mastered the basics of essay writing and who are ready for more challenging writing assignments. It will probably include some writing from research as well. If you have already completed a writing 2.0 course with me, you will probably qualify for registration. If you have taken writing classes elsewhere, I would like to see a writing sample before placing you in this class.

British Literature, Part 1 The first half of the year-long British Literature class will focus on early British literature and history. We will read Beowulf and from The Canterbury Tales and poetry from old England into the Renaissance. Students need the Barnes and Noble Classics versions of both Beowulf and The Canterbury Tales (found in the poetry section of the store). All of our poetry will come from Suitable for ages 14 and up.

Fall classes will meet on Thursdays.

Spring 2014 will offer Writing 2.0,  Writing 1.0, and the second half of British Literature.
