One major gap is writing.
After fifth grade, very little formal writing instruction is included in the language arts curriculum.
The Writing Center at Breakaway Prep addresses this need by providing weekly writing sessions where students learn how to use language effectively and become strong and facile writers. The program includes development of diction and vocabulary, as well as mechanics and grammar. But the heart of the program focuses on the writing process and encompasses techniques of persuasive and expository writing. Sessions are taught by experienced and certified teachers of English.
Students will work on:
- Assessing Strengths and Weaknesses with Self-Critique
- Main Idea
- Finding a Thesis in the Conclusion
- Finding the Weaknesses in Your Thesis
- Making Transitions
- Eliminating Repetition
- Creating a Grammar Checklist
- Deconstructing the Assignment Question, and much more.
We offer an innovative 10-week program developed specifically for middle school students, as well as one-on-one sessions for high school students. For more information, email us at email@example.com.
