Writing Workshops for Middle School & High School

“We were so happily surprised that Elan is able to write with such vivid vocabulary and in really clear organization!”   ~Mrs. Peng, proud mother of Elan, an ISEE test prep student who ranked 4th out of 100!

Students practice writing in a variety of literary styles, which include analytical texts, short stories, researched arguments, persuasive and narrative essays, and poetry.  Working in small groups and individually with teachers, every student is presented an opportunity to fine-tune their knowledge of writing genres, their personal writing skills and vocabulary.

Middle School Writing Workshop

Grades 6-8

We teach students the writing skills necessary to succeed on written assignments for middle school and early high school classes, as well as on standardized tests. The course focus is on brainstorming and graphing ideas, organizing the essay, drafting, peer editing and review, and lastly, final revisions.   Students learn how to convey their ideas effectively in a variety of literary styles.

High School Writing Workshop

Grades 9-12

This class is designed to teach students the analytical composition skills necessary to receive top scores in high school classes and standardized tests, as well as prepare them for the rigors of college-level writing. Students will conduct extensive text analysis and present their ideas in polished, sophisticated essays that demonstrate higher-level engagement with text and writing.
