This programme is designed to help students improve their writing skills and bring out the creative genius in them. It helps them think creatively and approach a composition topic from different angles. The teacher will teach students the various writing techniques to tackle picture, narrative, descriptive and expository compositions (type of writing skill taught varies with the level). Students will be given notes and model essays of varying degrees of difficulty and the teacher will guide students through each step in executing the composition with detailed verbal explanations. Throughout each lesson, students will be encouraged to raise any doubts or questions and participate in discussions. Every student's written work will be evaluated and critiqued and homework will be given in moderation to be prepared for the next lesson. Students will be encouraged to communicate with the teacher through email or other networking tools on a regular basis so that the teacher can provide them with a more all-rounded help.
