今年夏天，我们即将和HeadsUp!教育机构联合开办写作夏令营。写作夏令营共分两期。第一期为7月14日-7月18日，主题为 Expository Writing。第二期为7月28日- 8月1日，主题为 Creative Writing。
Expository Writing (07/14 – 07/18)
Focuses on the four subjects of the California Writing Tests, prose forms used in school assignments, the processes of selecting a topic and outlining the content, and writing mechanics (word choice, sentence structure, variety, etc.).
Creative Writing (07/28 – 08/01)
Concentrates on a variety of literary forms ( e.g., stories, poems, journals, plays, autobiographies, letters), and authentic self expression, with special attention paid to descriptions of character, setting, and action, and writing mechanics.
我们在5月18日下午2：00会在启明中文学校多功能厅举办写作夏令营的介绍会。演讲人为Early Learning Institute创办人，Write Now!执行主任Charles D. Bernstein博士。
