Academic Essay Writing for Grades 8-10

Summer Language Arts

Our Academic Essay Writing course, designed for students entering grade 8, 9, or 10, offers an intensive study of the how and why of academic writing. Students learn how to plan, draft, and revise an academic essay, and also why such essays matter. Featuring the popular college writing textbook, They Say / I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, the course approaches the essay as part of a larger conversation being held among scholars. The tools students gain in this course will help them enter that conversation and maintain it through their academic careers.

We offer this course in two formats: a two-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 3 hours each day, and a four-week course that meets Monday through Friday for 90 minutes each day. The content is identical in all offerings of the course.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.
