The students at Beyond Academics are continually practicing the
fundamentals, or academics of writing: vocabulary, syntax, grammar,
sentence variation, etc. However, our goal is to challenge and
inspire the students to go beyond these foundational components.
What does it mean to go beyond academics It means to reach beyond
the confines of rote learning and begin to think and create
independently. Academics are rudimentary to learning, but true
teaching does not stop there. We are not interested in creating
robots. Writing rules and formulas provide a concrete platform from
which students can begin building personal concepts and style. The
academic tools are provided so that the students can learn to
think, decide, and create. This is a process; it does not happen
overnight. Children must be gently guided toward this goal of going
beyond academics. As instructors, we must think of ourselves as
facilitators and guides rather than fountains that unrelentingly
