Refresh your writing skills before the school year starts! If you're a student who struggles with English essays, dreads DBQs, or just wants to get some practice in on developing arguable claims, this is the class for you. This class will help prepare incoming freshmen for the expectations of Upper School writing, and it will help boost the skills of upper class students who might want a little extra help. This course will focus on the writing process from brainstorming to revision, and will pay particular attention to devising appropriate structures and cultivating academic tone.
