Writing Training


The study of writing aims at enriching key writing skills, such as mechanics, paragraph development, organization, word choice, fluency, connections. More importantly, this course offers students an authentic community that can get them writing about high-interest topics and sharing their writing with others. From academic skills such as argumentative writing and writing research papers to more professional writing, you'll find it all here. There's even some help for better organizing and structuring writing as well as improving grammar. The five essential writing assignments here offer a set of unique and highly valuable work that will benefit middle school students in all content areas.
