Find your voice and learn to write essays with confidence. This course will cover the basic structure of the five paragraph personal essay, as well as admissions style essays students may need for SAT's, scholarship applications and college admissions. This is a Writer's Lab style course, where students will have an opportunity to turn in a rough draft of each assignment a week before the final draft is due. This allows ample time for a dialogue between teacher and each student about how to polish and improve a piece of writing. We will also walk through examples of student writing from prewrite through final draft, so that students can see how the process of good writing progresses and have thoughtful class discussions about what makes good writing. Students will also have a list of 20 vocabulary words to master each week, with a quiz to demonstrate what they have learned.
