Youth Writing Intensive

TJEd Academy and Prep School Presents:

Saturday: Youth Writing Intensive

A One-Day Seminar for High School age students and teachers

Saturday May 9, 2009   8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Cost:  $50.00/participant (parents $25 if attending with student)

The High School Essay Prep class is an excellent way to get immediate experience and inside tips on how to do your best on the timed, 25 minute response to a prompt required on the new SAT test. Participants will actually write two full essays, carefully study and then apply the College Board evaluation criteria to sample essays, while receiving a detailed booklet of resources and lesson plans for continued practice.

Additionally, students will learn special structure and style tools for use in composing the college application "personal essay"--an entirely different type of writing task. The complete process will be presented: choosing the question, creating the outline, and polishing a final version. Participants will leave with a clear concept of the task, their own outline for an actual personal essay, and several new tricks and techniques to add to their repertoire.

Although this seminar is specifically designed for those who will be taking the SAT or submitting college applications within the next 1-2 years (and especially those teaching such students), it is also useful for general writing practice, tools and tips. It is open to all students,regardless of their experience with IEW courses or materials.  A lot of actual writing is done
during this six-hour class.

Some comments from past attendees in Alaska and California:

"I really didn't want to come, but my mom made me, and I am soooo glad I did.  It's really
going to help me, and I'm not so worried about the SAT essay any more."

"I took the SAT last spring and did okay, but I'm going to do it again and go for a better
score.  With this new information, I'm very sure I'll do better on the essay portion."

"Mr. Pudewa's seminar is like the rock concert of writing classes."

"This workshop just de-mystified the whole thing for me.  Thanks!"

"Although I've been in many of your classes before, this was awesome.  I especially loved the
strategies for quickly planning and outlining a short essay, and the advice about how to
formulate an opinion and just go for it, even if you're a little undecided about the question.
Also the TRIAC paragraph model is awesome--it makes it so easy to organize a good

"Really glad I came. I learned a lot. (And I got out of school, too!)"

"I came to be with my son, but I actually had a lot of fun myself.  I sure wish I knew some
of this when I was going into college!"
