Student Descriptive Writing Specimen
August 18, 2017
This Resource, a snapshot taken from Skype, though very short, exemplifies the improvement in student performance during the Online Tutoring Class. The student was given two brief tasks to write descriptive lines on two topics following the Writer's style used in a novel. An on the spot activity- it produced such a good result that I felt ushered to share it with other students and teachers.
Small tasks like this encourage students to try out their skill and the knowledge of Language Analysis acquired during the study of the GCSE and IGCSE Syllabus is well incorporated and practically executed.
With a small start, the students feel encouraged and plunge into a larger task with passion.
