My teaching methods comprise direct lessons by analyzing models or exemplary work. Students learn to grow lens how to create content and organize it into specific formats by method. Through ongoing Q&A, feedback and reteaching strategies my students learn how to look at literary work and what to look for; they create written work by appropriate methods required by teachers and professors. Students use my variety of rubrics to model their work after and be able to self-assess and align their work with the criteria to achieve the highest quality results. Once students know the structure and design of a writing piece, they are able to recreate it. They learn also how to upgrade their work by editing and revising strategies. I help students with pre-made maps, organizers, and blank outlines to go through production of written work with precision and confidence.
