Description of Classes

Social Skills
This class teaches social awareness involving a strong sense of empathy the ability to understand and respect the perspectives of others and applying it to social interactions with people from diverse backgrounds.
Math
Students are involved in cooperative problem-solving activities, use of manipulatives, games and puzzles.  Homework is for exploration and enrichment or for the purpose of completing work begun in class.  We emphasize strategies for using math skills to solve problems.  Math level is determined by student ability rather than by grade.
Reading
Students choose books to read independently and also engage in book groups during class where students read, discuss, and analyze literature together, using their peers to help promote their understanding of the text. To demonstrate their reading experience, students have a wide choice of reading projects such as writing a song inspired by the book, rewriting a chapter from a different character’s point-of-view, designing character posters complete with graphics and quotes, or creating a board game based on their book. This allows students to interact with the text on levels besides analytical writing, and helps develop student intelligence and ability in varied.
Writing
Students will be able to efficiently organize their ideas and plan/write a five- paragraph essay. They will be able to construct narrative, informative, and opinion essays. Students will also be able to choose appropriate sources and write simple research reports. Finally, they will be able to closely read two paired passages and write an essay in response to a prompt.
