Academic Essay Writing for Grades 8-10

Summer Language Arts

Our Academic Essay Writing course offers an intensive study of the how and why of academic writing. In two weeks, 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, and is designed for students entering grades 8, 9, and 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.
