Writing and literature classes designed to teach students to wield words well *
What level class should my child take?
Grades 3 - 5
The stage where children are building foundational knowledge. Students often think in concrete terms, repetition and memorization. Vocabulary and word lists are valuable weapons!
Grades 6 - 8
The stage where students begin to ask questions and compare and contrast to understand how knowledge relates to other knowledge. Theme-based writing is a powerful tool at this level.
Grades 9 - 12
The stage when foundational knowledge and critical thinking skills have armed students to engage in reasoned debates, persuasive writing and literary analysis.
