   Early_Logic G&T Eng      3.5-4.5    9:50 - 10:35    Antonina Lifshits      Fall 18

As much as it appears unfair or unreasonable to start drilling and test-prepping our kids at such an early age, there is no harm in giving them a little bit of a foot-up. The earlier they get into the habit of learning things, the more they learn to focus, absorb, and process information, the easier and more enjoyable it will be for them in the future.

While introducing a variety of subjects from the world around us through images, games and open discussions, the class will focus on developing a variety of different skills: visual, logical and mathematical thinking, attention and memory, imagination and speech development.

These skills are, of course, the integral part of the OLSAT/BSRA tests required for getting into the Gifted and Talented Programs in NYC, and although we will try and address various issues systematically, I am sure the kids will still have their fun. 
   English 4      4    9:00 - 9:45    Aidan O Connor      Fall 18

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.

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.

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 with a small amount of writing and grammar.

Students can expect 30 minutes to 1 hour of homework each week. 
   English 6      5-6    9:50 - 10:35    Aidan O Connor      Fall 18

English 6 will be reading and writing enhancement course based on the sixth-grade level. The class may also be feasible for advanced 5th-grade students.

The Reading aspect of the course will be roughly 1/3 non-fiction material and 2/3 fiction material. It will focus on building advanced comprehension skills such as identifying motifs, arguments, theses, and the author\'s inspirations and goals. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing.

Assignments will include persuasive essays, research essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and a small amount of poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing) and will move to more creative processes in the second half.

Expect 1-2 hours of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course.

The students will be offered to do their own presentations on historical figures and events. Also, this year I would also like to incorporate in our classes a light version of the book club/debate units and have some more candid discussions of issues, rather than just presenting exciting facts.
