A Pen and A Plan: A Writing Workshop for the Middle School Student
Led by Ms. Sherry Parnell: Independent Professional Writer & Editor, Master of Arts in
Middle school age students can lose as much as 30% of their school year
learning over the summer. 1 This includes a loss of critical writing skills your child
needs to succeed. For the student seeking to keep up and get ahead, spending
as little as 2-3 hours per week during the summer can make a big difference.
Above Grade Level understands that as a parent you want to put your child in
the best position for success each new school year. That’s why we created the
Writing Skills Workshop for middle school students. This unique writing
program focuses on analytical and creative writing techniques. Students learn
to think critically and organize their thoughts into clear, cohesive ideas. They
will also learn some of the secrets professional writers use make their writing a
pleasure to read: writing with elements of style. The writing skills learned in this
course will be valuable throughout their middle school, high school, and college
Put your child in the best position to succeed. Above Grade Level is offering a
4-day writing workshop for middle school students to improve their creative and
academic writing skills.
Register early—workshop size will be limited to ensure individual attention.
