Essay Skills: Write Your Best English 30 Diploma Exam B
Tuesday and Thursdays, February 14 - March 23, 2023
This workshop is intended to assist students who are preparing for the written portion of the English 30 Diploma exam. 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. Students will be taken through an 6 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 up to 90 minutes twice a week, and will have lots of hands-on writing practice and feedback. A mark will be assigned for this course that may be used by the Gilbertine content specialist in a course challenge.
Additional tutoring can be requested at $50/hr.
Application Process: To apply for this workshop,
1) fill in the registration
2) submit a literary essay in the attachment portion of the registration (NOTE: We strongly recommend that this is a critical analysis essay, particularly for the 30-level students.)
Eligible students will be given priority based upon: 1) readiness for the course as determined by the submitted writing sample; 2) plans to write the upcoming English 30 diploma exam.
Students will be alerted of their status as soon as possible after receiving their registration and essay submission.
(Students who are planning on writing the exam at a later date can access this workshop again in the new year prior to their writing date. The schedule for future workshops will be released in the coming months.)
