Expository Writing Workshop


We are offering our small group expository writing workshop for students rising to 4th-12th grades again this summer. We are excited to host our students in our expanded Carnegie Hill office steps away from the Museum Mile and Central Park as we hope they can also take advantage of the area before or after workshop meetings.

As good writing takes time to develop, we appreciate that summer is an excellent opportunity for our students to practice this important skill without the typical pressures of the school year.

In our workshop, we provide students instruction on step-by-step writing progression for a deeper understanding of and confidence in the writing process. We engage in elements of the Judith Hochman method, starting with sentence work and progressing through to outlining paragraphs and writing multi-paragraph outlines for essays. Students will receive take-home templates that can be used for future writing assignments in addition to developing and completing their own peer-edited essays.
