      Program Description

      • English Systems - This class gives students specific instruction in the English language through use of authentic materials and class activities. Practice in academic writing, reading, listening, and speaking will improve students’ English fluency. Students will learn to take more effective notes, scan books for information, conduct research, expand vocabulary, and strengthen grammatical structures. This course will teach and practice reading skills using various types of articles and short novels. Students will read and write various types of essays, including descriptive, narrative, persuasive, as well as learning basic sentence diagramming.
      • Social Studies & Government Survey - This course will introduce a broad overview of US history from the earliest migration through present and familiarize students with the natural and political geography of the country. Current events and American culture will be integrated into the curriculum where appropriate. Students will be able to identify key figures, events, and places, while expanding their academic vocabulary in social studies. Study will include primarily readings from the text, supplemental materials, student inquiry, and class discussions.
      • Math/Science Literacy - This class will focus on math in English. Although we know most our students are very good in Math, we also know that they often struggle when doing Math in English. This class will look at teaching students the numbers, equations and formula in English, as well as the large amount of vocabulary required in order to be successful in Math under an English curriculum. The Science portion of this course will be a modified introduction to High School science. It will include studies from Earth Science, Biology, and Chemistry. It is appropriate for students with developing English skills to learn the vocabulary associated to Science. Many general Science terms and practices are related across the curriculum in all science class and this class will focus more these terms and practices rather than application.
