Summer Writing Program
We've been teaching online writing courses for over five years!
This summer, The Cooper Union Center for Writing offers four different styles of online learning and practice.
The Cooper Union Summer Writing Program prepares you for college by giving you the writing and thinking tools you need. This three-week course is designed for students graduating from high school in 2020 or 2021. Participants who complete all assigned work and attend all sessions earn a Certificate of Completion
Real-Time Online Learning: Our synchronous online classes meet for two hours daily through video conference. Sections are limited to eight students, and each class session typically includes discussion about the day’s reading, pre-writing discussion and exercises, skill practice, and instructor feedback. Instructors meet individually with each student once/ week.
Asynchronous Online Learning: Our asynchronous sections are available to students anytime, anywhere. Students watch recorded “short writing talks” and complete a series of online exercises before video conferencing one-on-one with an instructor each week.
One-On-One Writing Support: In these live, video conferences sessions, students work one-on-one with an experienced Cooper Union Writing Associate. Each curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the individual student to develop a series of strategies and tools to address a range of reading assignments and writing prompts.
Friday Writing Workshops: Our synchronous workshops invite participants to focus on specific aspects and genres of writing. Each two-hour workshop introduces the field, presents students with a series of strategies and approaches pertinent to the field, provides students hands-on experience with methods, and offers a range of resources to help support students in the future. Students meet with workshop instructors through live video conferencing. Friday workshops can be taken as a series, individually, or added to any other program option.
