ACADEMIC WRITING can be a very difficult task for many students. There are so many layers to writing a strong essay or a teacher-pleasing research report. EmPOWER™ Your Writing Skills camp will teach students how to use the EmPOWER™ writing process to launch them on the road to writing success. Students will learn how to:

  • Evaluate the writing task
  • Make a plan for the writing task
  • Organize thoughts using one of six specific graphic organizers
  • Write fact or opinion theme statements
  • Organize information in a logical sequence
  • Summarize paragraphs with a powerful closing sentence
  • Develop a voice in written pieces that engages the reader
  • Self-evaluate the quality of the writing
  • Edit to make necessary changes

The EmPOWER™ writing process is based on solid research and developed to help students connect oral language, organization of thoughts and writing. EmPOWER™ strategies enable students to develop the internal dialogue that guides the writing process and supports thinking for effective writing.
