Class Description

Writing on a high school level can be intimidating. Let’s take the scary out of the research papers and essays that every student needs to write! The first semester will focus on essays starting with the basics and then developing strategies for the SAT/ACT, writing from prompts, and college entrance essays. Second semester will focus on the dreaded research paper. We will walk through each step from selecting a topic, finding reliable resources, researching, attending to the details of proper documentation, writing a thesis, and then organizing all the information into a thoughtful and cohesive paper. We will also take time to edit and revise to produce a polished final product.
