These classes can be just a writing class with instruction, practice, individualized help, and assignments, OR a combination of writing AND literature studies using readers set in each particular subject matter or time period, OR just as a literature class alone. The literature component would focus on character development, plot development, and basic writing techniques used by the authors, with grade-appropriate activities.
These classes are primarily offered online, although in-person classes can be arranged when needed.
A variety of writing classes are available using the following theme-based textbooks from Excellence in Writing and Rainbow Resource Center.
Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales Writing Lessons by Maria Gerber (Gr. 3-5)
All Things Fun & Fascinating Writing Lessons by Lori Verstegen (Gr. 3-5)
Ancient History-Based Writing Lessons by Lori Verstegen (Gr. 5-7)
Wonders of Science Writing Lessons by Andrew Pudewa (Gr. 5-7)
