Academic Essay Writing for Grades 8-10
Our Academic Essay Writing course, designed for students entering grade 8, 9, or 10, offers an intensive study of the how and why of academic writing. Students learn how to plan, draft, and revise an academic essay, and also why such essays matter. Featuring the popular college writing textbook, They Say / I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, the course approaches the essay as part of a larger conversation being held among scholars. The tools students gain in this course will help them enter that conversation and maintain it through their academic careers.
This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.
Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.
Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes one week before the class start date to allow time for pick up of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.
