Make a good copy before April 30. Please take your own liberties with the suggested schedule.
I do believe that taking time to write is important, and your student may need that.
Extra time planning and organizing is a good thing, it means that the writing content and organization will be stronger.
I want to encourage writing SKILLS, not just quantity or box ticking.
I want to encourage a positive process. If the writing of these chreias is generating frustration for you and or your student, please connect with me. My hope in life is to encourage joy in writing, for everyone.
