Students must be enrolled in Literature and Composition 7/8 to enroll in this highly recommended, but optional, add-on.
The Writing Lab is a weekly “virtual hangout” where Literature and Composition 7/8 students receive individualized assistance from their Instructor and collaboration time with peers via breakout rooms. During this weekly, 50-minute session, Mrs. Cook will meet with students to correct homework and tests, engage in personalized writing conferences, and tackle challenging literary, vocabulary, or grammatical skills. Together, we will dig deeper into literature, polish our rough drafts, and complete vocabulary and grammar skill sheets.
In addition, students will learn and practice effective time management and organizational strategies. Writing Lab is an optional, though highly recommended add-on to the Literature and Composition 7/8 course.
We have created Writing Labs for Mrs. Cook’s middle school English courses to give parents an additional option to insure their students acquire strong writing and reading comprehension skills for upper-level high school work, while also learning time management and study skills.
