The Academic Writing Seminar focuses on the development of the brief analytical essay, a key groundwork for writing in all courses. Class time is divided daily into periods of topic discussion, writing workshop and peer review. The seminar progresses from basic writing mechanics to a more nuanced discussion of how to support an argument with appropriate detail. Students will review the foundations of strong academic writing, with an emphasis on establishing an authoritative tone. The seminar then applies these concepts towards the broader tasks of essay writing: the thesis, essay structure and organization, and developing evidence.
Attention will also be given to adjusting the writing process for different coursework and purposes throughout their high school and college careers.
