Those who overcome barriers light a path for others to follow.

Let’s use our words to honor them.

Welcome, everyone! I’m Angela, and this is a research and information writing course designed especially for fifth graders.

I know you must have a lot of questions.

So, here’s what you need to know.

  • This is an online writing class that young writers may access directly and at no cost.
  • Each lesson will invite writers to do a bit of learning and a bit of creating.
  • They will have a lot of choice as they do.
  • By the end of this class, they will have made a piece of writing that you can be proud of.

DO YOU Still have questions?

Check out the answers to those that are most frequently asked, below. Read them carefully, and if you need to know more, please reach out to your teacher. He or she will help you. If that isn’t possible, your teacher will reach out to me directly. Know that in the interest of your safety and to protect your privacy, I will not be able to interact with students in this space.

What to expect in each lesson:
