Problems Elementary Students Encounter in Writing

Join our owner, Helen Panos, as she continues our new season 6 podcasts by interviewing Dr. Corey Barnes, one of our own Dynamis tutors.  However, Dr. Barnes is not only a great tutor, but also ads being a teacher and principal to his list of accomplishments.  Listen as they discuss the problems that elementary school students encounter in writing.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why Dr. Barnes became a teacher
  • What he considers his strengths as a teacher are
  • What “meet them where they are” means
  • What he considers a weakness in writing with elementary students
  • What is a strategy he uses to counter this weakness
  • How to “voice” your writing and how it can be helpful when generating ideas
