Two 1 hour classes/week (Tuesdays/Thursdays, 10:30 - 11:30am)
This workshop is intended to assist students who are preparing for the written portion of the English 30 Diploma exam for January 2022. Students will learn to decode essay prompts and utilize effective essay formatting. Applicants need to have advanced writing experience. A maximum of eight students will be accepted.
This workshop covers the 2 essay types of the written portion of the exam: the Critical/Analytical Response to Literature and the Personal Response. Instructor Kathy Royce will take students through an 8 week program to cover each of the 7 scoring categories of the exam to help students achieve the highest score they can. Students will meet twice per week for a 1 hour class, and will have lots of hands-on writing practice and feedback. Mrs. Royce will assign a mark for this course that may be used by the Gilbertine content specialist in a course challenge.
Kathy Royce has taught for 30 years and has also worked for the Alberta government setting standards and marking the English 30 diploma exam.
Additional tutoring can be requested from Mrs. Royce at $50/hr.
