Middle School English - afternoon session

Middle School English - afternoon session

Our first session has already filled up, so we are offering an afternoon session of the same class.  Poetry Madness Countdown, playing with language, group and individual writing projects, classic readings, and contemporary literature are a few of the things we will explore in class.  Students will learn how to analyze literature, how to write creatively, and how to write essays.  Readings include a plethora of poetry, a Shakespearean play, short stories galore, and a novella if time permits.   No textbook required.

Erin Chianese is a teacher, published author, and former homeschooling mom to 2 daughters who have graduated from college. Her goal as a teacher of English is to share her love of writing and reading with students. Her philosophy is to respect each student's writing content and process, to try to create a safe place to share writing, and to acknowledge each students' gifts. Parents are welcome to email or call Erin at [masked] or[masked]-6800.

This is a drop-off class, but as always, parents are invited to stay and observe.

To sign up one child, please RSVP as yourself; to sign up two children, RSVP +1 guest, etc.

If you are not using charter school funds, feel free to pay online or bring check/cash to the first day of class.

This location has a playground where parents and younger siblings may wait.  Trampoline is off-limits, though.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you!

    Hi Erin! I'm interested in your response to Linda's question, and also wondering if time was correct--will the afternoon class be an hour instead of 90min?

      Sorry, my mistake. The afternoon class is 90 minutes, too.
