Prepare for the TJ SIS – 2 options
Option 1: If you think you missed your chance to prepare for the TJ SIS workshop, we are delighted to announce that Dr. Aimee Weinstein has agreed to conduct an extra workshop on Sunday, February 3rd from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
During the workshop we will discuss essentials of writing and the students will write three SIS and one math response. Students will email responses to Dr. Weinstein who is also the essay reader; she will critique and return the essays during the week (Hopefully by Wednesday).
To participate, students will NEED A LAPTOP, power source, google docs, and an email address for correspondence. There is a $35 rebate for students who took the six-week comprehensive TJ class in the fall. Text Kate at 703-203-5796 to get rebate.
Option 2: Can’t come at that time? Here is an at-home alternative:
In preparation for the TJ SIS essay section coming up in February, we are offering for students who took our TJ prep class to re-do the essay portions of the program. (New students may also participate). To receive critiques please purchase online the “critique” package, and then email Dr. Weinstein (email@example.com) the answers to all of these prompts. Dr. Weinstein will reply with comments in a few days. You can email them one at a time or all at once; it’s your choice. All prompts must be completed and emailed by February 4th. The cost of the critiques is $125.
Here are the prompts:
