Three classes (see below for descriptions: SAT Intro/Prep, Intensive Vocabulary Study, and Essay Composition), including all-day/lunch supervision and Friday trip to The Paddock Shops for a celebratory lunch.

Save money and enroll your student in a full week of English immersion! Essentially an English camp, this option allows both struggling students and those who excel a focused opportunity to hone their language skills for a full week in preparation for the coming year.

A702: Exponential Expansion of SAT Vocabulary: Rock the SAT!

NEW BOOK FOR 2020! Vocabulary Cartoons, by the Princeton Review, and ROCK THE SAT, a CD of songs that incorporate the hot 200 SAT/ACT words into catchy, easy-to-remember pop/rock songs (all materials provided by the instructor) This course will involve nothing less than an assault on several professional study guides for ACT/SAT/ERB vocabulary. We will engage in a myriad of creative games and exercises that will aid in burning these words indelibly into our minds. The books we use offer excellent visual mnemonic devices, making learning difficult words much less painful than a standard vocabulary text. Again, this year we will be using the very popular rock music component! Rock the SAT makes learning high stakes testing vocabulary as easy as listening to your mobile device. I will provide the songs, and students will be able to import them into their iTunes for listening well beyond the week of class! Believe it or not, this class is actually FUN:-).

Please Note: Should you wish to enroll your child in both this course and my afternoon course(s), I will gladly supervise the lunch hour here at school. Students will need to bring their own lunches each morning.

A703: Polished Essay Composition in the Digital Age: A primer in the fundamentals of solid essay writing, with an added emphasis on the integration of technological tools to maximize efficiency

Using the tremendous technological tools now at our disposal, we will immerse ourselves fully in the writing process, learning the fundamentals of excellence in essay writing. We will pay special attention to the art of self-editing and revision, which will require students to begin to understand writing as a process, rather than a product. Students will produce at least one and possibly two complete essays within our week of work. No homework will be required, but I will offer p.m. digital assistance for any motivated students who want to work and night to go the extra mile! Please Note: Should you wish to enroll your child in both this course and the accompanying morning course(s) I offer, I will gladly supervise the lunch hour here at school. Students will need to bring their own lunches each morning. Refrigeration is available. Please also look at the full-day English camp option to save money.
