Writing is a dynamic and exhilarating art form.
However, there are basic skills that one must possess in order to allow youngsters to express themselves effectively. Our ultimate goal is the ability to create the well-reasoned argument of a formal essay. In order to attain that goal, each youngster must have several key components. We begin with vocabulary development. We work on weekly word lists, and begin assembling a vocabulary bank for use in the essay. Grammar and punctuation, parts of speech and exercises that build on each other are used to establish correct sentence structure. At the same time, we work with each student to understand what makes writing exciting. What is an opening ‘grabber’? How does the conclusion relate to the introduction? How does one develop arguments? When students are prepared to write paragraphs we show them how to form a complete statement idea within each paragraph. Ultimately students create vivid and compelling arguments in complete essays. It can be helpful for students to combine the reading and writing curriculum in order to optimize their focus, though students can opt for just one subject or the other.
