Pre-university Writing Workshop

Pre-university Writing Workshop


Are you interested in improving your academic writing skills before you head off to university or college?

If so, you have an opportunity to attend a four-day workshop to do just that. The workshop will be a timely review of how to write term/research papers. This review will be done online using the Google Meet platform. Liam Walker and Chris Gallant, both ELA teachers at Allison Bernard Memorial High School, will co-facilitate the workshop. During the four-day workshop, Liam and Chris will provide explicit instruction as you engage in writing a research paper on a topic of your choice. As well, they will provide individual support and valuable feedback to help your writing improve. As a result, you will be better prepared for your first year at university or community college. So, sharpen those pencils and sign up for this awesome opportunity.

Where: Google Classroom/Google Meet
When: August 17, 18, 19, 20 (Monday – Thursday)
Time: 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
