The Process-Teaching/Process-Learning Writing School Design teaches students to become creative, motivational, skillful, and confident writers. It stresses organization, elaboration, and editing.
Writing will be Inter-Disciplinary throughout all other subject areas: science, social studies, geography, civics, & history at all grade levels.
Students in Grades K-1st will learn to write sentences and short stories utilizing Sight Words and Common Nouns consistently.
All writings will be edited with each student by the teacher.
Students in 2nd and 3rd Grades will learn to write Descriptive, Narrative, and How-To/Explanatory, and Compare & Contrast Compositions - PLUS Chapter Summaries for Book Reports.
Students in 4th and Higher will master the above compositions, PLUS: Persuasive & Characterization Compositions, Literary Analysis Summaries, and Research Writing.
Weekly Compositions will be taught, reinforced, & edited by the teacher- not the parent. Every word, sentence, paragraph, and composition will be edited with each student.
Grammar/Mechanics will be taught in Isolation (Separate Skill Sheets) and while editing all student compositions with the teacher so students can "Learn From Own Mistakes" to achieve Individual Mastery.
