The Writing Fundamentals Class is an online mentoring workshop for children aged 7 – 15; to inspire a love for writing in children and equip them with tools to become better writers. Participants learn the rudiments of a great writing piece and understand why writing effectively is essential to success in life, what they need to write better, and how to improve their writing skills. The ‘Writing Fundamentals Class’ gives children the resources and guidance to develop as effective writers. Participants learn how to use WRITING CONVENTIONS appropriately, CREATE SMOOTH AND EXPRESSIVE SENTENCES using a RANGE OF SOPHISTICATED WORDS that convey the intended message effectively in WELL-DEVELOPED PARAGRAPHS.
Learning Focus: Paragraph development
Some children have no problem sitting down and writing a number of ideas on a sheet of paper at any given time on a particular subject. However, after they have jotted down these thoughts, they review their work and realize that their topic is completely unorganized and that there is no flow between the sentences.
The participants will learn
- Creating an outline
- Topic sentence development
- Supporting details
- Using quotations and evidence
- Providing strong, relevant information
- Using colourful and clear words
- Crafting a strong closing sentence
- Utilizing appropriate transition words
- Following proper grammar rules
By developing competence in the above, the participants can create stronger, more developed paragraphs.
