WRITING CLASSES

In our writing classes we will explore and practice how to write so that we are heard and understood. We will work on:

  • Preparing to write and getting started (often the hardest part!)

  • Learning how to pique the reader’s curiosity

  • Structuring essays and other texts logically

  • Making sure our writing flows and is easy to read

  • Building strong arguments to support our ideas

During our classes we will also:

  • Engage in exercises which encourage critical thinking

  • Look at what creativity is and how to tap into it

  • Work on English grammar and vocabulary as needed

  • Build a list of useful online and offline resources we can use in the future
