Academic Essay Writing
Our Academic Essay Writing course offers an intensive study of the how and why of academic writing. In two weeks, students learn not just how to structure an academic essay, but also why such essays matter: why people write them, why people read them, and why teachers and professors care so much about them. 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, both in their middle- and high-school careers, and in college.
This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day, and is designed for students entering grades 7-10.
Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there is more than a week before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due one week before the course begins.
