Breakthrough Learning Center is always adapting to the changes in the school system nationwide. As we prep for this summer, we have revised and refined our curriculums so Breakthrough students are engaged, have more hands on experience, and thoroughly understand the foundation of concepts.

 

Get ahead this summer by joining one of our rigorous Summer Review Courses. Our SRC gives an introduction to students on topics to be covered the upcoming school year. We offer a variety of courses that will provide double reinforcement and confidence to students. Each course includes a structured curriculum provided the first day of class, tests throughout class to reinforce concepts, and activities throughout the course that will keep students engaged and involved in their learning process. As students apply their knowledge of concepts to diverse Common Core Projects, the retaining of the information becomes stronger for each student as they go through the school year.  

Please inquire for more time frames and classes available.

Review over different writing composition structures such as narrative, persuasive, compare and contrast, and literature response. Depending on grade level, we prepare according to Common Core Standards and also prepare them for the following grade school year. Lower levels would concentrate more on compositions, while upper grade levels would focus on Document Based Questions and Literature Response Essays. Literature response essays require analysis, understanding, and interpretation of stories through using examples of figurative language. This class will build creative writing skills along with Common Core based projects to reinforce standards. Common Core learning needs a strong basis in writing and analytical thinking so these writing skills can be applied to other Common Core subjects.

This class will have short stories and a novel where students will analyze and discuss ideas and thoughts in class. Analysis development, reading comprehension, and public speaking development are skills that can be gained from this class. We will be reviewing comprehension and literature strategies as students are annotating and relating the stories to real life examples to build on critical thinking skills throughout the course.
