About This Activity

For over a decade, Classroom Matters has offered the Bay Areaâs premiere essay writing workshop. Our program aims to prepare students ages 12-17 to write better, more cohesive essays in an intensive, week-long workshop. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION We focus on a variety of components essential to expository essay writing. From literary analysis to shaping and supporting a strong thesis, small classes meet daily to explore the writing process in a fun and engaging environment. Through mini-lessons and guided practice, students will strengthen their aptitude for writing clear and convincing essays, as well as develop a keen understanding of what makes good writing. Experienced teachers will assess each studentâs level of ability; students will receive our trademark manuals as well as other valuable handouts to use throughout the school year. WHY IT WORKS Separate classes cater to budding writers and to more experienced writers who want to hone their skills. Weâve designed our curriculum to meet their diverse needs, giving students more one-on-one attention and feedback on their writing. All students will be asked to submit a writing sample before the start date so that we may evaluate their progress and make recommendations for continued growth as writers. Monday through Friday, 10am-1pm
