Summer Grammar Camp
Description: This is a five week class intended to shore up student’s grammar, punctuation, and general writing. This will be especially helpful for students who need some work in grammar prior to taking Middle School Composition sequence and High School Composition I (taken by many 8th graders). In our experience most students who are taking composition benefit from this class. Students will be taught a comprehensive grammar lesson, with plenty of examples, practice, as well as real-time writing practice.
Grade Level: 6+
Workload: Students can expect an incremental bit of work each day (30 minutes) and in-class grammar and writing exercises.
Required Materials: Fix It! Grammar: Robin Hood, Teacher Book 2 by IEW. Please note: Students will NOT be using the Teacher Book. Parents should retain this and not allow the student access unless checking their work. There is a free download of the Student Guide included with the purchase of the Teacher Guide. You can also simply purchase the Student Guide for $15 if you wish, but many find it helpful to have the Teacher Guide for outside of class. Students will need a headset microphone (built-in microphones will also work).
