No matter what the grade level, all students can benefit from a basic tune up of writing, math and any other skills that may atrophy over the summer. The focus of this course will be on basic review of the last year's curriculum in preparation for a solid start in the new grade in September.
Based on the previous grade, students will be given a solid review of math and writing skills from the previous year to address any deficits present and to ensure that the student enters the new grade with a solid background needed to succeed. Ongoing support for the new grade in September will be available at the discretion of the student/parent.
This course will offer ongoing review of key concepts in the Socials 11 course (BC Curriculum) and work on strategies for success on the provincial exam, including essay writing and approaching multiple choice questions strategically.
This course will focus on review of key concepts and vocabulary in the three streams of the Socials 11 course - Government, History and Geography - and will help students to apply that knowledge to successfully complete the Socials 11 provincial exam. Essay writing will be focused on as the exam includes two mandatory essays and study skills will be addressed.
If you are looking to improve your writing skills, whether it be for a large research essay, an in-class essay or preparation for writing paragraphs or essays on tests, this course will help to establish where your current level of writing is and how to improve from there.
We will start with assessing where your current writing skills sit and then make an individualized plan for improvement from that point on, whether the writing is done individually or in a group session. Brainstorming ideas, outlining, editing drafts and final copies will all be covered as will proper in text citation and bibliographic citation as necessary.
