First Clinic: Intensive Essay Writing, I

Skills in reading and writing impact most areas of curriculum. Proficiency in writing comes from understanding the fundamentals. This clinic focuses on topics to help students who struggle with writing. Instruction includes: Selecting a Topic, Organizing Ideas, Thesis Development, and 5-Paragraph Essay Structure.
