Summer Writers Workshop

Published by tutorb7_wp on

Tutorburg’s 2020 Summer Writers Workshop is modeled after a well-known, well respected writing program that follows a systematic and comprehensive approach to writing. Each student will receive their own binder with guided student writing prompts and checklists.

Students will learn to create a Key Word Outline for a provided text. Using the Key Word Outline they will retell in their own words and transfer to paper. Students will be introduced to dress-ups, strong verbs, and enhance their vocabulary by replacing banned words with words from a thesaurus. There will be minimal homework outside of class time.


This workshop is offered to students in grades 2-8

High School level available for an additional $20 fee per student (to cover the cost of additional materials).

If handwriting is laborsome or a major concern please provide your student with a device so they can type their work.
