Reading & Writing Workshops


Each class is only $99!

Reading classic literature and practicing comprehension skills improves learning across the board. And of course, it goes without saying, that good readers are also good writers!

Each four week mini-session will address reading comprehension and encourage deep insights into classic literature while working on effective short essay format and longer book report style writing. Students will read a portion of the assigned book each week and answer comprehension quizzes, learn vocabulary from the book, share insights with their peers in forums, and write both meaningful essays and creative assignments that resonate with the book's theme.

Our summer session will begin on August 1, 2016.
