Advanced Composition
Class Introduction


The following points will help you understand the structure and expectations for the Advanced Composition classes held on Wednesdays at 2:45 and on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m..

How the Class Works:

• We begin each class with a general discussion of a topic of interest to writers. Sometimes, it is a grammar point; often, it is a point of style.

• Following this discussion, students are introduced to the worksheet we will use for that class.

• After making sure the students understand the concept, writing practice will begin on an assigned topic. This practice is for from 20 to 35 minutes, depending on the class length.

• At this time, the teacher will also produce a sample for the class topic. As a result, neither the teacher nor the students should interrupt one another during writing time.

• At the end of writing time, students will share example sentences for review on the screen. Corrections and discussion will help everyone to better writing for that class.

• At the end of class, students will receive a copy of the teacher’s model topic paragraph and the student examples.

• NOTE: Students may then take their work home for further revision and correction.
