9th-12th Grade Students: College Ready Writers Online Workshop
July 6 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
July 6 – 17, 2020
9:00AM – 12:00PM
Autobiographical writing, poetry and academic writing—this workshop will focus on a range of writing genres. There’s nothing quite like writing about self and family to help students develop their writer’s voice. To help students find their own “academic” voice, students will read engaging texts and write responses to them. They’ll build on what others have written in order to develop their own ideas and positions.
