For 9th-12th Grade Students: College Ready Writers Online Workshop

June 25

June 25 – July 9, 2021  (No class Monday, July 5)

9:00AM – 12:00PM online

Two Sessions
Instructor: Sharonne Hapuarachy

Instructor: Mark Gozonsky

This year has been unprecedented in so many ways. Students have experienced school, life, and the world differently from any previous year. College-Ready Writers will offer students the opportunity to share their unique perspectives and to develop their writing skills while engaging with relevant social issues. This workshop will focus on a range of writing genres, including autobiographical writing, poetry and academic writing.   To help students find their personal “academic” voice, students will read stimulating texts and write responses to them.  Students will have the opportunity to develop their argumentative writing skills, engage in debates, and participate in the writing process, receiving personalized feedback from peers and instructor to help them grow as writers and produce polished and professional final drafts.

Fee: $450

Registration will open soon.

Sharonne Hapuarachy has been teaching English at Dorsey High School for the past 21 years. She is a National Board Certified teacher, with a Masters in Education from UCLA. In her free time, she enjoys any kind of game, listening to live music, and working with a group called Students Deserve—an organization that helps students to develop as leaders and to advocate for their educational rights.

Mark Gozonsky will be starting his 19th year of teaching in the Los Angeles Unified this fall.  An English teacher at Cortines “Grand Arts” High School in downtown LA, Mark is also a working writer, contributing frequently to The Sun and other literary magazines.  He still plays baseball in Sunday Leagues, although during quarantine much of that energy has been diverted to the care of four egg-laying hens.
