Writing for College Readiness

Want to improve your writing and learning skills to meet college-level expectations? This course will build your confidence in your writing through frequent writing practice and the development of key skills such as research, argument and revision. With support from the instructor and peers, you’ll work to expand your voice so you can feel better prepared for future writing experiences.

Who It’s For

This course is for incoming 10th to 12th graders. It is not for those who need remedial writing help, and all students should have a high level of English language proficiency.

She has taught courses in creative writing, composition, literature and environmental humanities. Jessica is also a Ph.D. candidate in English language and literature. She earned an MFA in poetry at the University of Washington and a BFA in English at Lewis & Clark College. 

More Information

This remote course will use a learning management system like Canvas and Zoom video conferencing. To participate, students should have access to a computer with speakers and a microphone and an internet connection. A headset and a webcam is also highly recommended.
