Apprentice Level III


  • What? Focusing on a novel of the student's choice, this class leads one step-by-step in writing a narrative critique, based on a five-paragraph essay model. The challenges of "parts-to-whole" thinking expand from the Apprentice Level II course, because of the broader scope of the topic. Students continue to develop essential outlining skills, to look for conceptual patterns as a means of sorting through details, while providing textual evidence to support arguments. Students will study the fundamentals of writing topic/concluding sentences, introductions/conclusions, along with thesis statements, while plugging away at proper comma use and eliminating passive voice verb constructions.

  • Where? On-line classes are available on on-going basis. Past in-house classes have been offered in Acton, Concord, Newton and Andover, MA. No plans have been finalized for in-house classes for the summer and fall. If you would like to host a Write Well class in your area, see the HowToHostAWritewellClass link for details.

  • When? On-line students may register at any time. If you would be interesting in hosting an in-house class--and you live within 30 miles of Concord, MA (60 miles if summer)--see details by clicking on the HowToHostAWritewellClass link.

  • Why? Give your child a sound start in developing these essential writing skills, with the advantage of a proven, easy to use curriculum, and with the assistance of a private instructor.
