   Architecture4Kids 2      6-8    10:40 -- 11:25    Greg Gurevich      Fall 19

For 12-14 years old it is a chance to learn the basics of architecture, how buildings work, how they are built through drawing and calculations. Students will learn how to assemble their own creations.

Materials to be used:

lego, wood, paper, cardboard, duct tape, straws, tooth pics, leaves and clay. 
   English 6      5-6    9:50 - 10:35    Aidan O Connor      Fall 19

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      Fall 19

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      Fall 19

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      Fall 19

This course is designed for sixth/seventh grades bilingual students with a
strong foundation in Russian. It aims to increase students\' reading and
speaking proficiency to an advanced level.

Students will continue studying Russian orthography. During this
semester, they will practice writing paragraphs and short stories.

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.

   Russian 8/9      7-9    1:00 -- 2:00    Antonina Lifshits      Fall 19

This year we would like to offer a new format for our Russian class. This class for older
students will be focusing on reading and analyzing plays and poetry as well as on
writing plays and/or movie scripts based on various books and stories of students\'
choice.

Although we will certainly still pay attention to grammar and spelling, we will
mainly focus on active reading and composition. Working individually and in groups the
students will create their own texts, which may be eventually turned into our School\'s
theatre production or individual short movies.

The additional segment of this class will be dedicated to studying up for a Russian AP
test. Succeeding in this test will allow our older students to add an extra class to their
list of achievements for college. 
   SHSAT_Practice_Tests 20 New      7    10:40 - 12:40    Aidan O Connor      Fall 19

The curriculum includes complete topics coverage as well as systematic SHSAT preparation. The primary goal of the course is to make sure that students have academic knowledge of Math and ELA and the skills needed to succeed on the exam. Students will both study the curriculum knowledge necessary to succeed on the exam but will also study and practice key test taking strategies that have been proven to increase children\'s scores.

The course also provides (abbreviated) practice exams periodically (5 in total) in order to assess your child\'s performance and growth. The course also provides a brief introduction to the schools that are available to get into as well as educates students on how the SHSAT scoring works and personally customized ideas on what are the best ways to improve your overall score.

The course includes:

-Vital practice questions that cover all tested material
-Proven score-raising strategies with an emphasis on improving math and verbal skills
-25 important math subjects/concepts covered on the exam
-Practice Reading Comprehension passages (non-fiction, literary, and poetry).
-Full-length practice tests and the most up-to-date information about the test

   Tests_preparation Hunter      6    12:50 - 2:20    Aidan O Connor      Fall 19

​The course should only be taken by students who are planning on taking the exam in January 2020 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.
