WRITING ABOUT HISTORY: Writing About American History is a cross curricular class designed to engage students in the writing process by giving them tools to rewrite interesting historic passages. They will grow as writers while learning American History from both original sources and articles. In this class students will focus on improving writing skills rather than on creating original works, which will allow each child to grow as a writer from the very first week.
This is an introductory writing class for ages 8-12. Students should be able to read fluently at a third grade level in order to get the most from this workshop. Students will spend three weeks learning about writing paragraphs and short passages before moving on to combining works into a historical essay. The end goal is to not only help your child grow as a writer, but to also help him grow to love history
