Writing and Research
Tutor: Kim Witthuhn
|Length: Fall Semester
|Class Period: Wednesday, Period 3
Description: College-bound students benefit from writing at least one long research paper. This class will guide students through the process of researching, drafting, revising, and finalizing a 12–20 page paper. (The length will be determined in collaboration with the students and parents and according to skill and experience.) Along with a written paper, students will prepare a presentation on their topic to the class as well as teach different writing topics. Also included in this class is the introduction of college-level vocabulary terms and review of common problems in grammar, especially those difficult areas that often appear on college entrance exams.
This class is offered in the fall so that students can take it and be aptly prepared to take a PSEO writing class 2nd semester if they so choose.
