Final Exam!

red-pencilDon’t panic! It’s completely optional. But we thought it’d be fun to give you a little essay test. A short one. 

Besides, what is school without finals? But don’t worry, this is (hopefully) the kind of exam our students will love.

We’d like to invite our students to contribute to the Blog by writing a 300-500 word essay answering one of the following prompts:
  • My favorite part of Kidlit Summer School was…

  • What I learned from Kidlit Summer School was…

  • Kidlit Summer School made me a stronger writer because…

  • My light bulb moment during Kidlit Summer School was…

If you choose to take your Final Exam and would like to share it with us, we are planning to post some of these essays to the blog over the next few months. All you have to do is to email your essays to nerdychickswrite@gmail.comwith the subject line “FINAL EXAM ESSAY – PERMISSION TO POST.” In your email, please include your name as you’d like it to appear on the blog, your website if you’d like it included, and an optional photo of you and/or your book (if you are published).

badge50DUE DATE FOR FINAL EXAM: Well, there is none! Just like everything else about Kidlit Summer School, you should feel free to work at your own pace. 

We look forward to hearing your thoughts, whenever you wish to share them. Maybe you already have something to say. Maybe you want all of the Kidlit Summer School goodness to sink in first. Maybe a thought will hit you much later as you refine your work in progress! We can’t wait to feature some of you here!
Please note that it might not be possible to post every essay we get.


Coming up later this week: Announcements about giveaways and prizes! Hooray!

    This is a great idea. I can’t wait to see all the response…mine included.


  11. When I saw the words Final Exam, my heart started to palpitate (or maybe it’s the 10,000 ft elevation in Breckenridge getting to me), but Kami and Sudipta have done it again. I’m going to let my brain marinate in all of the juicy goodness of summer school for a bit, then take what I’m sure will be the best final ever!


  12. Thanks again for a great class! You are leaving us with so much to think about and it will be very helpful to be able to refer to the lessons and homework over time.
