Grades 5-6 – 2x per week – July and/or Aug.
Location: Hillfield Strathallan College
Our summer English Language Arts teach students how to communicate clearly and effectively in both speech and writing. We achieve this by focusing on three core components:
- Vocabulary building
- Reading comprehension and analysis
- Critical writing
Each week students:
- Are introduced to a series of valuable new words that they learn to use in context
- Read and discuss exciting and challenging pieces of literature, both classic and contemporary, including short stories, essays, and poems.
- Are drilled in the fundamentals of writing, from how to write a series of strong sentences to a series of well-structured paragraphs.
Students receive writing assignments on a weekly basis, and the importance of understanding writing as a process is pressed upon them. Weekly writing assignments are edited and returned for revision with a second (and sometimes third) draft required.
