Hey college-bound students!

I was speaking with a group of college students and this is what one collegiate learner said, “The only assignments we have are essays and exams. I’ve written 40 essays in 2 years!”

Does that stress you out? Don’t let it! Are you worried about writing college essays and papers? Don’t be! We will get you ready and will teach you the skills needed to succeed. With practice, you can improve your writing skills and get the grades you want.

In this course, we’ll focus on developing the essential writing skills you need to excel in college. In our live sessions, we will give you the chance to connect with your instructor and classmates, ask questions, and get the support you need to succeed. Our explicit teaching methods take the mystery out of how to write well, and you’ll receive personalized feedback throughout the week to help you grow as a writer and learn how to revise your work to make it even better.

A summer writing class may not sound super exciting and fun. And let’s be real, nobody has ever said to us, “I LOVE writing essays.” We know. But, if you get good at it, if you get fast at it, you buy back leisure time with your newfound buddies on campus. Are you ready? We can’t wait to help you on this journey.

Here’s what you’ll learn. This is a weekly subscription, so you can pop in and out as you like:

  • Developing a strong thesis statement that guides your writing and supports your argument in informational essays.

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching and Learning is Explicit!

Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students try to construct meaning themselves.


Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay or read or do a geometry proof, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.

Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.

Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
