Wordsmith Creative Writing (grades 6-9) $275 
Thursdays in Burton

We will be using one of my favorite resources, the Wordsmith curriculum by Janie B. Cheaney, which covers basic writing skills, starting with the building blocks of grammar, progressing through good sentence structure, and finishing with creative writing. We will begin with the parts of speech (noun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition, pronoun) and clear sentence structure. Then, we will move on to several kinds of creative writing, including figures of speech, descriptive writing, narrative, poetry, dialogue, and fiction. Parents will need to provide the Wordsmith book, which is available here and other places online for about $16:
