Course Description: The best way to learn how to write... is to write! In this course we will do a LOT of writing in various applications. We will do academic essays, as well as short story fiction, how to write an email, recipes, and more! A dual leveled class, students will be sorted into two groups. "Advanced" (returning students or 8th graders), or "Newbies" (first time students and all 6th graders). The topics covered will be the same, but the writing assignments will vary in length and grading scale.

Course Objectives: Students will learn how to write persuasive, informative, and compare and contrast essays. Additionally, students will learn how to write fictional short stories, emails, thank yous, and more! Occasional grammar quizzes and PSAT prep style quizzes will be given, but the vast majority of work is writing! All students will have written more than one 5 paragraph essay by the end of the year.
