English Writing II (Middle school): 初中英文写作

English Writing II (middle school): Using a researched based teaching model, this class will reinforce fundamental writing skills and students will learn to express themselves accurately by learning to write clear, linguistically complex sentences and well-organized multi-paragraph essays. Covering various topics based on student interest, this class will focus primarily on expository essay writing, including how to outline and organize an essay, write introductory and concluding paragraphs, and create transitional sentences. They will also acquire fundamental life skills including how to write formal emails, quick and concise note taking, and organizational skills. Homework assignments, though required each week to ensure that skills are retained by the students, will not be demanding so as to account for other commitments students may have.
Instructor - Shirley Hwang: As a John Burroughs and NYU graduate who studied education and a current language arts teacher at The Windward School in Manhattan, New York, Shirley is thrilled to be able to join the SLMCS community as a remote expository writing teacher. Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, she spent many childhood years attending SLMCS and is happy to be back now as a teacher. In her four years at NYU, Shirley worked for an organization called Jumpstart that focused on teaching language and literacy skills to preschoolers. Her time in the classroom working with students and watching them learn and grow gave her a lifelong passion for teaching and encouraged her to seek out her current job as a middle school English teacher at Windward. Working with elementary and middle school students has given her a variety of skills and experiences that make teaching every day easy and exciting.
