Summer Writing Workshops Help Students Write Right in the New School Year

Are you concerned about your teens’ writing skills? Here are some comments I’ve heard from students this year:

  • “We get a lot of writing assignments but no directions on how to write the papers on the books we are reading.” (8th grader)
  • “I sometimes can’t keep up with the reading, so I skim the books and write the papers two nights before they are due. I need to plan papers better.” (12th grader)
  • “Usually the way for me to get moving on papers is to just start writing. We normally don’t have to do an outline, but I think it would help. I just struggle to get started.” (10th grader)

During the pandemic, writing instruction floundered for many. Curriculum was “dumbed down” in some cases to simplify delivery for stressed students and overwhelmed teachers. So the normal process of teaching students the “nuts and bolts” of how to write didn’t always happen effectively..

Relax. We’ve Got This Parents!

Here’s what students take away from our writing workshops:

  • Learn how to set up routines for writing essays that can be used for all assignments now and going forward.
  • Discover how to create a strong thesis statement and organize the evidence to prove it.
  • Stop procrastinating papers with a new tool box of strategies that make brainstorming and outlining a breeze.
