First ACT/SAT writing workshop scheduled for February 16, 2013

GRCC’s ACT/SAT writing workshop is designed to help students understand the expectations for taking the essay portions of the ACT and SAT exams. The workshop highlights eight characteristics that graders of the exams are looking for and teaches students strategies for meeting the expectations.

The goal of the workshop is to help students understand the testing expectations and situation in order to give them the confidence to meet this challenge. Students are encouraged to ask questions and to use the skills of the workshop as they practice independently.

Students will:

  • analyze sample essays.
  • learn to use the prompts to formulate their answers.
  • practice writing thesis statements and introductions.
  • learn about how to incorporate support in essays.
  • write a practice essay.
  • receive a critique of their writing with recommendations.

The workshop will be held at 9 a.m. to noon February 16, 2013; 6-9 p.m. February 18; and 5:30-8:30 p.m. February 21 at Tassell M-TEC. It costs $38. To register, click here.
