Welcome to the homepage for the Learning Zone. The video-lessons on this page can be used in class or at home with students to introduce various aspects of the writing process. Teachers, please consider flipping instruction so students get the lesson plan lecture at home and do the homework in class, thereby allowing you to provide more one-on-one and small group instruction in class.

If you have questions, e-mail Mr. Jeffrey at mrj@mrjeffrey.com or call him at (909) 477-6900, extension 2337 during school hours (PST). In addition, please feel free to have your students use the Message Board to post their assignments and receive feedback from one another or from students around the globe.
