DUE TO COVID 19, all our classes are running online!
For our Research Writing Program, we want to provide you with examples of our students work and progress. Many of our students who join this class, do not know how to do proper research. This course gives them the tools needed to do research in an academic setting.
Above you'll see images containing examples of our students work and what we teach our students in this class. Feel free to look through it and see our students progress:
PDF1- This student is in the 6th Grade and has had some previous experience with research essays. We see in this packet that they are unfamiliar with how to construct their thoughts cohesively and in a manner that exhibits good analysis of work that was given.
PDF2- We now see with the Final Draft of their first essay, that they have a clear understanding of indenting when needed to, and following the instructions given in the packet. But a lack of a heading and MLA format bring the overall essay down, with too much slang and generalization of topics too common throughout.
PDF3- The next class, we reviewed how to properly include an MLA format heading for Week 3, while sharpening skills and focus on the writing of the next essay. Construction of the essay is available for students to understand and is broken down step by step so they can have an idea of where they should be heading for the next essay that should be written.
PDF4- Improvements to the heading and structure of writing can be seen, but still needs help with wording certain sections and keeping the overall tone of the essay professional. Beyond this, the MLA format is a good step in the right direction, but is not at the level I expect.
PDF5- Significant improvements in annotations, note taking and analysis of the stories given to create a structure for the first draft of the new essay. Written examples next to the outline, helps indicate that student understands what they need to do to make essay cohesive and organized.
PDF6- Almost perfect MLA formatting, with a few errors in background information and wording, again, slang is an issue, but regardless, very cohesive and understandable and an immense improvement from the few weeks before when they just began.
