7th/8th grade Math/Writing Tune-Up

This session is geared, primarily, to rising 8th graders, although ambitious 7th graders are welcome as well!
WRITING: Special emphasis will be placed on developing a good outline from a prompt, supporting thoughts with details and on how to write a strong paragraph in a short period of time.
MATH: Emphasis will be placed on strengthening “mental math” skills in multiplication and integers. Problem-solving and “short cuts” will be reviewed in order to prepare students for Algebra.

Study Skills Bootcamp

Have you ever had these thoughts?
“I studied really hard for a test, but when I took it, my mind went blank.”
“Teachers always tell me I need to study more, but I hate notecards.”
“My homework scores are great, but my tests and quizzes are terrible.”
“The teacher makes us read out of the book and take notes. How am I supposed to know what is important?”
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, Boot Camp is for you! This course is designed to help students improve classroom skills including note taking, reading from textbooks and creating good outlines. Students will also focus on writing effective notecards, learning new test preparation strategies and study time management. Finally, we will focus on test taking skills and building confidence in academics. Students will walk away from this course with a variety of tools to be successful in school while having fun!
