Writing Classes for Middle & High School

Kepler's bookstore in Menlo Park is offering two summer sets of writing classes - one for grades 5-8, and one for high school kids. Here are the details:

Engaging Reluctant Writers (grades 5-8)
This class encourages students to move past their writing phobia, and will choose writing projects that excite them, seeing it through to completion. They'll write about any subject that interests them, in a research paper or illustrated book. Through the instructors, they'll learn to see this as an exciting opportunity to share their knowledge and passion rather than as a chore. The class will be a workshop model, with teachers interacting 1:1 with guidance and feedback. Each class features an interactive lesson, writing time, individual mentoring and time to share works in progress. Read more about the class and the instructor here.

When: Monday-Wednesday August 5-7 from 10 a.m. to noon
Where: Kepler's Bookstore (1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park)
Cost: $225

Writing the Personal Essay (grades 10-12)

With the college essay in mind, this class focuses on writing an attention-grabbing personal essay that shows your intellectual and creative abilities. The class works on key features of the personal narrative, and students will complete the course with a polished, ready-to-submit personal essay (more details here). Lessons include handouts, short lectures, fun and dynamic activities, writing time and 1:1 mentoring. Students should bring a laptop or notebook and an essay draft or ideas.
