Writing Camp 5-6: Language Arts Triathlon
Summer Language Arts
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" that students will compete in during the Language Arts Triathlon on the final day of class:
- 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 final day of class is 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.
Note: To ensure students have the best experience, it is recommended that they do not read the course texts before class starts.
This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.
