High School Semester Option — Summer/Fall 2024

Cultivating Clarity: Thinking and Writing

These days it’s easy to confuse a sound argument with an opinion piece, a blog post, or lengthy Instagram rant. Students need to learn how to read a range of sources, evaluate arguments, and then take a position to defend intelligently, with nuance.

Bumping one’s own thinking against the greater conversation in the world is the grounding beneath good nonfiction writing. Learn to access thinking, evaluate the arguments of others, and write about it using compelling language!
