Elementary Writing: Young Poets’ Society vs. Junior High Writing: Young Poets’ Society:
Though the same poetry forms are covered with the same video lessons, worksheets, and portfolios, additional constructive feedback and more rigorous grading will be provided to challenge the junior high-level students.
My teaching philosophy at the elementary level is to light the fire of education through encouragement, excitement, and gentle corrections on major points. I believe over criticizing young learners can be detrimental to their love of learning, as they don’t always have the foundation to fall back on for their confidence levels.
Junior high students, however, are usually ready for a gentle challenge to help them push themselves to see what they are capable of.
If you have any special notes you would like to share with me about your student prior to class, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I will do all I can to help accommodate your child’s needs to help them succeed.
