Writing Lesson - Sample

Writing not only entertains, it fosters artistic expression, stimulates the imagination, and clarifies thinking. But the act of writing does even more than that. We write to explore the functions and values of writing, to learn to read and write, and to search for identity.

The ability to effectively and creatively use language to communicate is essential to writing. Our writing courses are one of the most creative areas of Linkonlearning. In the writing program, we combine core concepts of spelling, grammar, and language, providing our students the opportunity to channel these fundamental concepts through their imagination to create and design a variety of works.

Registered students access their lessons, which are customized to their grade and skill level, with a unique username and password that allows access to the online classroom, library, and recess area.
