High School Essay Intensive

Presented by humorous and engaging director of Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW),  master teacher Andrew Pudewa, the High School Essay Intensive class provides immediate experience in text-analysis writing exercises. Students will learn to employ strategies required in many college entrance exams or in response-to-literature prompts, including how to thoughtfully read the provided text, evaluate the ideas presented, select facts or examples to support an author’s claims, and identify stylistic or persuasive elements–such as word choice or appeals to emotion–which add power to the ideas. Open to all students, regardless of their experience with IEW courses or methodology, this seminar also offers tools and tips for general composition skills. Come prepared to write a great deal during this two-hour class.
