The Skills for Effective Writing class is designed for rising seventh and eighth graders who want to strengthen their writing skills in preparation for the coming school year. Through a combination of activities, mini-lessons, modeled examples, and sustained writing practice, students will work towards a stronger command of sentence structure and grammar, with additional emphasis on clarity of expression and organization of ideas. Students will receive individualized attention and feedback on their writing, and each student will be provided a writing reference guide and computer to use during the summer session.
