English Workshop (G9-10, 11-12)


“There is significant correlation between student interest and academic achievement.”

(Schiefele, Krapp, & Winteler, 1992)


The above fact is a core element of the Kwan Academy teaching philosophy, making our Summer Work Shop far more than just a conventional English class.  Whether you want to be a professional writer someday, or just ace the AP English class, our High School English Workshop is just what you are looking for.   

The class is designed to function like a graduate school writer’s workshop and develops writing style and literary analysis techniques (not to mention the sort of vocabulary and reading comprehension skills that boost SAT scores). Reading materials are limited to poems, short stories, short plays, and articles (NO NOVELS!). Sign up now, and learn to write and read literature the same way college students do!
