Foundations in High School Writing

Open to incoming 9th-12th graders
June 17-July 8 (no class on July 5), 9-11:30 am
Fee: $300
Instructor: Greg Larson

 

Open to incoming and current La Salle students, this three week non-credit course lays a foundation for high school writing by leading students through an intentional and academic reading and writing process.  This course will cover foundational elements of every reading and writing based class at La Salle and in college: close reading and annotation, generating questions for class discussion and individual inquiry, prewriting, thesis generation, sentence structure and fluency, drafting essay paragraphs, as well as revision and editing.  We’ll develop a process to increase comfort confronting challenging texts as readers, and we’ll endeavor to galvanize a process for fostering excellence as writers with something meaningful to share.  In short: you’ll leave with more clarity, practice, and confidence as a reader and writer.

 

Writing the College Application Essay

Open to incoming La Salle 12th graders

August 24-27 (Tues-Fri), 9-11:30 am

Fee: $150

Instructor: Monty Mickelson

 

The prospect of having to compose and submit a personal essay is, for many students, the most daunting aspect of the college application process.  Introducing yourself—your very best self—in a mere 650 words (or less) may seem like the literary equivalent of building a ship in a bottle. Writing the College Application Essay helps demystify this process and alleviates much of the anxiety young writers often bring to this task. Using a workshop format, the class will review successful essays on a broad range of topics and styles. Students will brainstorm ideas, and then commence drafting a personal essay that conforms to one of the Common Application prompts. During a revision phase, students will edit for tone and content while preserving their own authentic voice.
