Class Description

For newcomers to our program plus returning students from our Level I and Level II Writing classes along with our Speech and Debate class. We will use an entirely new set of poetry, short stories, and novel excerpts to teach middle school schools how to read and write at a high school AP level. This will include introducing students to all of our tips and techniques for how to handle both the multiple choice and essay sections of the SAT and AP English and History exams. Students would then be years ahead of their school classmates in terms of their ability to read and write everything from narratives to literary analysis to research papers, to the type of argumentative essays that are required for the SAT and AP exams. We’ll specifically cover everything from how to write a great thesis statement to topic sentences to how to imbed and then analyze quotations, etc. Using a google drive documents exclusively for our class, students will be able to post their writing while receiving immediate feedback in terms of editing and revising while also learning the important skill of being able to quickly organize and then write against the clock – which they must learn in order to master essays for all of their standardized tests.
