Thank you for your interest in my writing classes this year.
I am sorry to say that neither the middle school or the high school class on Tuesdays received the minimum number of students needed to hold the class. Both classes are cancelled.
Now what? I have a couple of options in the works:
I will be adding a writing class at the Lapeer Homeschool Partnership for middle school students, grades 6-8. Details are not announced yet, but I believe it will be entitled Middle School Journalism and it will be on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:25 pm at the LHP Building on Lake Nepessing St. in Lapeer (just south of I-69). This will be a good basic writing class for informational writing. If you are interested, you need to call right away and enroll in the LHP program. This is a public school program that partners with homeschoolers. (Description of the class is below.) To enroll, call Michon Periso. 810-667-2453 or email firstname.lastname@example.org; https://www.facebook.com/lapeerhomeschoolpartnership/
I am considering adding two online classes – one for middle school and one for high school – through Outschool.com. If this interests you, please either request a class via Outschool or just let me know what would fit your needs as far as day/time and content. https://outschool.com/teachers/Lisa-Wagner Since these classes are open beyond our local area, it is more likely that these classes would be held.
There are a few other options I am offering via Outschool, Seeds of Faith Co-op and LHP this year. Details are on my website: http://www.wagnerwriting.com/
I am sorry that the Tuesday classes did not work out. If I cannot work something out for you this fall, please subscribe to my newsletter and Facebook page to be notified of any upcoming courses, this year or in the future. http://www.wagnerwriting.com https://www.facebook.com/wagnerwriting/
Middle School Journalism: Tell Your Story (grades 6-8) Wednesdays from 1:30-2:25 pm at the LHP
Are you someone who likes to get the story straight? Do you always want to know more? Who? What? When? Where? How? These are the details that make for a great story. Knowing how to find these key facts and then write them up in a way that makes it easy for others to read about it is the skill of a true journalist. In Middle School Journalism: Tell Your Story, you’ll learn how ask the right questions, look for the details, and find the story in any situation. You’ll learn how to gather information effectively, organize ideas, format stories for media production, and edit your articles. Get ready to break that news.
This course has a required online component through eDynamic Learning. http://edynamiclearning.com/courses/middle-school-journalism-course/
Best wishes for your upcoming school year!
