Made With You in Mind
Raising nuanced thinkers is increasingly difficult in the age of images, short ranty blurbs of text, and speedy delivery of new content that just races by.
In Essay Writing 201: Critical Response Essay, students
- get into the center of the reading and writing experience
- read purposefully, identifying main points and arguments
- decipher images in the news
- separate how a text is written from what it’s written about
- receive feedback showing that their thoughts and reactions matter
We revitalize your teen’s thinking, leading to more complex thoughts. Experience the satisfaction of transferring thinking to the page and seeing the reaction of other readers as they interact with those thoughts.
The skills taught here have maximum cross-curricular appeal. Use these exercises again in your history, art, or civics units! All great reasons to consider picking up this class.

This course is designed for high school students with essay writing experience.
Students should already be competent writers and have experience with academic formats. The Essay Writing 101: Analytic Essay and Essay Writing 102: Persuasive Essay classes are recommended preparatory courses, though not required.
