Chess C | mixed | 11:30 -12:15 | Scott Chaiet | Spring\'20 This class will learn all the principles of classical chess. Hypermodern chess ideas will be looked at. The interaction of strategy and tactics will be considered as this will take the student to the next level. The student will have to bring in their games, and they will be reviewed. This area is most important to analyze their own games critically. |

English 4 | 4-5 | 9:00 - 9:45 | Aidan O Connor | Spring\'20 The goal of this 4th grade ELA class is to not only improve students’ ELA skills in the short term, but also introduce strong reading strategies and habits that will help students’ skills improve for years to come. The goal is also to ensure students perform to the best of their abilities on the State Exam. Each student will finish the course with a reliable and well-developed foundation to build off in the ELA subject area. The course will tackle fiction reading, non-fiction reading, figurative language, active reading, a few ELA test-taking strategies, basic grammar, analyzing text and more. The class will also provide test prep for the 4th grade NY State Exams. Scores on these exams can be very important for students looking to gain acceptance to new Middle Schools. Much of class and homework will involve reading and responding to text (age and grade appropriate material). Digesting complex text is an invaluable skill in both high school and college. Building strong focus and mental stamina at this age will benefit your child immensely in the years to come. The course will focus mostly on reading comprehension and writing with a very small amount of grammar. Students can expect 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework each week. |

Tests_preparation Hunter new | 5 | 12:50 : 2:20 | Aidan O Connor | Spring\'20 The course should only be taken by students who are planning on taking the exam in January 2021 and who want to get a head start on building the foundations necessary to succeed on the Hunter Entrance Exam. We will cover the three sections of the exam: Reading, Writing, and Math. The Reading portion will include reading comprehension of high-level (~8th grade) fiction. It will mainly feature works from the turn of the 20th century. The writing will focus on writing a strong 5-paragraph personal essay within time constraints. The Math will focus on creative problem solving and cover a range of topics from basic algebra and geometry to probability and pattern recognition. The math will feature problems similar to those seen on statewide Math contests. Since this course is for 5th graders, it will focus first on introducing all of these concepts before moving on to mastering them, which will take a significant amount of time and work. The course will be focused and serious with homework assigned each week that must be completed. Parents should make sure students enter the course with a serious commitment to it. Students should expect an hour of homework per week. |
