Here’s What’s Inside Summit Writing Academy
Video Resource Library
Students can find past writer’s workshop videos and helpful topic-specific videos in the Video Resource library. Students can access these at any time.
Students get Playlists that are generated just for them, based on the writing skills they need to practice. Playlists are part of a Collection. Each Collection includes four Playlists. Students practice two types of writing in each Collection.
Chocolate Words are words that are delicious and enrich a student’s writing. They can be found in any book students are reading. They can also be heard in conversations or discovered when out and about doing real-life things. Chocolate Words are part of the Playlist each week.
Each Collection has a reading challenge that includes suggested titles for both of the writing types in that Collection.
Students can get help from a writing instructor without having to show up at a certain time. Because students and instructors live in different time zones, this asynchronous form of writing help works well.
During each Collection, students have the opportunity to polish a piece of writing of their choice. They apply the instructor’s feedback they received from their revised version as well as work through copyediting and proofreading checklists before submitting a polished draft for the second round of instructor feedback.
Saturday Stories Podcast
The Saturday Stories podcast features Summit student writing and is hosted by Mrs. G.
Anthology of Student Works
Twice a year (May and December), current Summit students are invited to select polished writing to include in the Anthology of Student Works. Each contributor receives a softcover paper copy of the anthology in their mailbox.
When a student completes four entire Playlists in Collection it is an accomplishment worth celebrating. Students receive a printable certificate for every Collection they complete.
