PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Each day, campers are introduced to a new skill. Sessions begin with a 30 minute interactive workshop where students have the opportunity to study texts that exemplify the daily skill focus and gain an understanding of the techniques they will be applying to their own writing. In their next block, students have the opportunity to practice and apply the skills they have learned to their own writing. During this time, instructors will facilitate one-on-one check-ins with each student in breakout rooms to check for understanding and provide individualized feedback. In their last block, students will share what they have written and provide constructive, growth-oriented feedback to one another.
