Everyone’s a Critic
Friday / August 1, 2014 / 11:00AM / at 826 Seattle / Entering Grades 8 - 12
As it’s never a good idea to judge a book by its cover, there’s nothing like a really good, honest review to help others choose what to read. In this four-session workshop, you get to be the critic for as many books as you want. You’ll read, you’ll talk about the books with others, and you’ll write your own reviews. You’ll even get to post your reviews on the Seattle Public Library website. The masses will thank you. Students may recieve school service hour credit for their participation in this workshop.
Friday, July 11th from 11:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.
Friday, July 18th from 11:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.
Friday, July 25th from 11:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.

Is the SAT creeping up on you? Whether you’re just beginning to think about college, or you’ve already chosen your dream school, you may find our introduction to SAT prep and college readiness helpful. Each of the four sessions will feature experts speaking on different aspects of the college admission process, followed by SAT prep help from our experienced and talented tutors. Unlike our other workshops, students are not required to attend all sessions of this workshop. The first session of this workshop on Friday, July 11th meets at the Greenwood Branch of the Seattle Public Library, which is a few blocks south of our center at the corner of 81st and Greenwood.
