   Architecture4Kids 3      7-8    10:40 -- 11:25    Greg Gurevich      Spring\'20

This STEM-oriented class aims to help students understand the different elements involved in designing and constructing our \"built environment\". We will continue learning about architects who have played an important role in the development of architecture and explore significant buildings. Students will apply basic calculations to design, draft and construct their projects and learn to present them to the class. There will be an emphasis on 3-dimensional thinking, design, scale, context, and building using various materials. Examples of projects include designing the building frame, facade, calculating the area and zoning of a building. 
   English 6      5-6    9:50 - 10:35    Aidan O Connor      Spring\'20

ELA 6 will be a 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 class will also prepare students for the 6th grade State ELA Exam with test strategies, explanation of the exam, and practice. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing. The class will also feature a small amount of grammar.

Assignments will include persuasive essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing), the class will then send some time prepping for the State Exam in April and then will move to more creative processes in the tail end of the course.

Expect ~1 hour of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course. 
   Geography/History 1      5-7    11:30 - 12:30    Antonina Lifshits      Spring\'20

This class will continue for the most part looking at the history of the world
chronologically, starting from the period of the late 18 th century onwards. We will start
with the subjects of American and French revolutions and continue onto the history of
the 19 th century.

We shall, however, also re-trace our steps and go back to the history
of China, India, Japan and other non-European countries in 16-18 th century and some
other parts of the world.

The students will be offered to do their own presentations on historical figures or
events. However, 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 then just interesting facts.

   Russian 5/6      5-6    1:10 -- 1:55    Nadezhda Zhavoronkina      Spring\'20

The curriculum of this class is best fitted for emerging readers.
We will continue reading, retelling and discussing simple (but meaningful) stories, learn poems by heart and get acquainted with rich possibilities of Russian idioms.

The focus of the class, however, will be on writing and basic grammar.
This class will reinforce reading skills, enrich vocabulary, as well as encourage our students to express their thoughts and observations correctly and coherently. 
   Russian 6/7      6-7    2:00 - 2:45    Nadezhda Zhavoronkina      Spring\'20

This course is designed for sixth/seventh grades bilingual students with a

Exercises will develop the child\'s active and passive vocabulary. 
Regular homework will include reading short stories, composing and
answering questions, performing simple grammar exercises and
memorizing pieces of poetry to complement language proficiency.

The exposure to and study of contemporary and classical literature will
continue complementing the technical aspects of the course, thereby
developing students\' knowledge and understanding of Russian culture.
