Essay Writing Intensive Workshop – Grades 7 (academically mature) – 11 – Spring 2021 – 10 Weeks
Wednesday, April 7 2021 @ 11:00AM - Wednesday, June 16 2021 @ 10:30AM EDT| $250.00
This is a ten-week INTENSIVE class on ESSAY WRITING.
Students NEED the time to do this class right. Every single week, your child will write 1 five-paragraph essay. Writing a GOOD middle school / high school essay takes time. There is a process they will learn to follow. Be prepared for your student to write for about 5 hours weekly. Please make sure you understand that time commitment. I will repeat – this is an INTENSIVE class.
This class will follow IEW format. Students will learn structure as well as stylistic techniques.
If your child has taken a writing class where they focused on 5-paragraph writing (IEW or not), this is a good review for them!
If your child has struggled with writing, this is a good review for them!
If your child is joining OTA’s Middle School Writing or All About Essays, this is a FABULOUS jump start for them!
The more they practice the better they will get!
