Dr. Tung’s Reading & Writing I

 

    This class is aimed at students who can already read at a Third Grade level and can write sentences.

    Reading and writing are two skills that go hand in hand. In order to write well, a child needs to read widely and deeply.

    In this class, your child will read together with the other children and with the instructor passages taken from news articles, and occasionally from appropriate literature, usually classical. After discussing the passage on all levels, the students will then discuss and analyze the material in a Socratic seminar. Finally, they will brainstorm and write an organizer for a five-paragraph essay, draft it, edit it and publish the final product.

    This class also uses the online Classcraft software to keep students motivated and as a means of assessment.
