I received this inquiry:
This looks like a great class. My high school daughters already have a full schedule, but are interested. What amount of homework will be included? Would you also suggest it for upper elementary?
Here is my reply:
I am still developing this class. This is the first year, in fact. There will be quizzes each week, but, I have not worked out the homework piece of the class yet.
Initially, we were going to read “Word Power Made Easy” by Norman Lewis, but I had to abandon the book due to multiple inappropriate sexual innuendos. I have not replaced the book yet.
At this point, I am planning to simply include students in the writing process as I have already begun writing my own version of Word Power Made Easy.
As for homework, though, I have little at this point. Students will come weekly to class, and they will take a weekly quiz on my website. Beyond that, at this point, there isn’t much. There will be “recommended” reading. I suppose that could count as homework.
I realize this is not much of an answer. But, at the moment, it is the best I’ve got.
