Book Hooks: 3 Paragraph Essays (An English Class from Luma Learn)

Luma Learn has several online classes on English related topics.  Check out their website to find them all:

Online Programs for Homeschoolers – Luma Learn

Hearing good writing helps develop good writers. In this 12-week online class, students will actively listen to and discuss a well-written passage about an amazing person!  They will brainstorm vocabulary and ideas, refine grammar and punctuation skills, and develop a well written 3 paragraph essay with an introductory paragraph, body paragraph, and concluding paragraph.  We will focus on 4 types of writing:  narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive.

Notes that have been created from our collaborative efforts will be sent out after class.  During the week, students can copy the class paragraph, adding new details, an introductory paragraph, and a concluding paragraph.  Advanced students may choose to write on a completely different topic with the same purpose for writing.  For example, a student may choose to write an essay that tells a story about a historical figure they are studying. They will still be writing for the purpose of practicing narration, but they will start from scratch to write their essay, rather than build from the in class work.

The 12 weeks will be broken down as follows:

Week 1: Narrative Paragraph (tells a story): 3rd Person

Week 2:  Narrative Essay:  1st person

Week 3:  Descriptive Essay: Describe a Scene

Week 4:  Descriptive Essay:  Describe a Person

Week 5:  Descriptive Essay: Describe Emotions

Week 6:  Expository (Explanatory) Essay: How To

Week 7: Expository Essay:  Compare/Contrast

Week 8:  Expository Essay: Cause/Effect

Week 9:  Narrative Essay: Imaginary Story

Week 10:  Persuasive Essay:  Change Circumstances

Week 11:  Persuasive Essay: Why I’m Good for the Job

Week 12:  Course Wrap Up

We will learn about Peter Roget (words master); Sophie Germain (mathematician); Moses (God’s Ambassador); James Audubon (ornithologist); Dorothy Lange (photographer); Michelangelo (sculptor); John Newbery (publisher of children’s books); Paul Erdos (mathematician); Edwin Binney (inventor of crayons); Peter the Great (Russian Tsar); and Katherine Johnson (NASA mathematician). My teaching style is interactive, with emphasis on giving all students a voice and a safe place to share ideas. Students will be encouraged and challenged so that they become confident writers!
