Summer Writing Program: On Campus
Imagine a class where an enthusiastic and experienced teacher makes writing interesting. Where the expectations of college-level writing are presented clearly and concretely and you learn the techniques and approaches you need to write analytically. Where thereâ€™s plenty of time to practice new skills and see how they connect to strengths you already have. Thatâ€™s what youâ€™ll find at the Cooper Union Summer Writing Program.
Hands-on Learning and Practice
The best way to learn to write better is to learn new approaches, practice them, and get feedback. Thatâ€™s why SWP classes are a mix of discussion and hands-on writing. Our classes never have more than ten students, so youâ€™ll get ongoing individualized attention that will help you continuously improve and refine your work. Our instructors not only teach college-level writing, they have years of experience working one-on-one with students, and they love teaching.
In a typical class youâ€™ll:
- Discuss the dayâ€™s reading
- Use writing to generate ideas and ask questions about what youâ€™ve read
- Practice the skills you need to develop an argument
- Learn how to build an analytical essay
