3 weeks: September 10, 17, 24
Location: Jewish Community Center of Mission Viejo (JJC)
The foundation of strong writing is crafting powerful sentences. “Wow” sentences are the focal point of this three week mini-class. Using literature, students will examine how author’s write different types of sentences, and how they use colorful words to add details and expand their ideas. After young writer’s analyze these model sentences, they will put these new tools into practice and have fun writing their own stylish prose.
Outside Classwork: under 30 minutes per week
