45 minute essay writing workshop

45 Minute Essay Writing Workshop

This class is focused towards standardized testing essay requirements, like for the ACT, and AP exams, and helps prepare students for that specific portion of the test. 
Writing a well thought through essay can be hard enough without the time restraints and, when given these time restraints, many students end up not doing their best because they feel rushed. This class is designed to give students confidence when given a timed essay test and will definitely help with standardized testing timed essays. 

Day by Day Outline:

Day one
   Go over how to outline in five minutes or less
   How to write a well thought through thesis statement in two to three minutes
   How to effectively write the essay
   How to quickly review and edit with the time left over

   Mock timed essay (45 minutes)
   Go over essay in class
   Talk about scoring

Hello parents, 
To anyone who is considering taking the essay workshop...
I've been homeschooling my children now for the past 3 years. I have two teenagers who have finished the essay 101 writing class. For most of us we have a subject that might be a little more challenging than others. For my kids it was writing, they struggled so much with sentence structure,  turning writing assignments in on time, having mom critique them and give them back to them to make corrections. Having this writing class was invaluable to our family, my kids learned so much.  They work so hard every day learning all the different forms of essays, getting the assignments done on time and they didn't want to disappoint the teacher. Especially because teacher wasn't mom. 
The instructor, Hannah has such a passion for writing and it shows in her teaching abilities(especially the creative aspect). My kids loved being in her class. She was approachable and communicated writing in a way that my children came to find writing fun instead of a choir.  She has even written her own curriculum!  I would highly recommend this class to every high school student!

Thank you, 
Cynthia L.
