[For homeschool students - grades 4 through 12]
Could your student use help mastering the essay-writing process? Could he or she benefit from concentrated instruction in writing structure and style?
I am thrilled to partner for a second year with The Academy at Houston Baptist University (HBU) (map) to offer summer Writing Camps for middleschool and highschool students through my offerings with An Elegant Word.
In addition to holding a B.A. in English Literature and a M.A. in Education, I am an accredited Accomplished Instructor with the Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) as well as a published author with several years of teaching experience. (But my real claim to fame is being married to my husband, Dr. Gary Hartenburg, the Director of the Honors College at HBU.)
There are a few different camp options planned for this summer. All Writing Camps will be held on campus at HBU in July or August. Writing Camp students will participate in activities aimed to inspire a love of words, sentences, and word-play. With the support of guided group discussion, brainstorming, and critique, students will learn to write with appropriate structure while enlivening their prose with stylistic flare. An intensive overview of style elements will assist students in developing vivid vocabulary and sophisticated sentence variety.
