    Curriculum

    In this course, students will build advanced grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills by solving engaging puzzles and competing in daily language arts challenges with their classmates. Through these daily activities, students will level-up their mastery of essential skills for reading and writing like a pro.

    Each day of class includes time dedicated to each of three "events":

    • Grammar: Students will investigate a grammar concept and use their new understanding to solve a daily puzzle. Concepts begin with essential skills for recognizing parts of speech and culminate in a deep analysis of sentence structure.
    • Vocabulary: Each day, students will gain skills for decoding advanced vocabulary as they explore etymology and word roots through engaging vocabulary puzzles.
    • Writing: Students will build their writing skills by advancing through a series of increasingly challenging tasks, from constructing clear sentences to writing a strong paragraph for an essay.

    The class ends with the Language Arts Triathlon, an engaging, collaborative competition where students will put their skills to the test in a battle of words! Through this event, students will measure their progress, both against themselves and in friendly competition with their classmates.

    There are no textbooks to purchase for this class. Students will be provided with a packet of handouts to print for use in the class.

    Format

    Our instructors hold classes virtually, in a small-sized (10-16 students) videoconferencing classroom. With a small class size, teachers can give individualized attention to each student, providing real-time verbal and written feedback and supporting students' growth as writers.

    Homework

    Our Language Arts summer courses do not include homework. Students receive frequent feedback on their writing and present their work throughout the course.

    Drop and refund policies

    If you drop a summer course before the start of your first class session, we'll issue a full refund for the course tuition. No refunds will be issued for withdrawing from a summer course after the start of your first class session. We do not accept Language Arts book returns, since they are purchased from a third party.
