Shakespeare and Beyond
Writing workshops offer vital support for high school English students looking to improve their academic writing skills. Participants get the opportunity to work one-on-one with graduate students who teach expository writing and literature at local universities. Tutors guide students through the process of writing a persuasive essay, from brainstorming and planning to drafting and revision. Students learn how to construct a compelling thesis, develop their ideas through careful analysis, and write in lucid prose. Offered in class or after school, this program is designed to help students refine critical thinking and writing skills that translate across disciplines in high school, college, and beyond.
