The Prometheus Academy - Write Shop (Middle School)

Sharing the fire of learning

Questions, send email to Julie at:

Meets ONLY on Mondays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Prerequisites: Student should know how to write a sentence.

Homework Expectations: 1–3 hours per week, depending on each student's pace.

Write Shop: 1½ hours per week, 32 weeks

Students are welcome to bring a laptop or other device to class to do their writing.

Most of our students could use some work on their writing, and it is often a painful process for us parents.  The WriteShop approach is a good fit even for those who hate writing or deal with difficulties in writing.  It is a really clear process, taking one step at a time.  We work on pre-writing activities, editing, revising, and building particular skills.

In this class, we take small steps to reach our goal of effective writing that does not feel like torture. Students with dysgraphia or dyslexia are absolutely welcome in this class.

Each First Revision and Final Draft needs to be typed.  If that is not possible, they can be neatly handwritten.

Instructor's Note

In the past couple of years, the cover and format of the Student Workbook has changed.  The price remains the same--$55.95  Please select the Print book, not the E-book.  Instead of a original blue, three-ring binder, the text is a paperback book, with tear out pages.  Older versions are are fine to use as long as all the pages of your copy are intact.  The Synonym Finder is not required for this class.
