Reading, Writing & Mathematics Workshop (Gr. 7)


Summer Programs - Adult and Youth / IAR Reading, Writing & Mathematics Workshop -
Summer 2021

This invitation-only summer program is to provide students with extra instruction to reinforce skills and concepts in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. Students may be registered for one or both content areas based on school recommendations.

Reading and Writing Workshop - The purpose of this course is to provide extended learning opportunities for students who require additional acceleration in the areas of reading and writing. Through the analysis of global climate change, students will work to develop their ability to read and analyze text, think critically about and discuss modern issues, as well as develop and share their own opinions through writing. Additionally, students will read fictional text to practice and develop their ability to analyze themes, character development, and relationships between individuals.

Mathematics Workshop - The purpose of this course is to provide extended learning opportunities for students who require acceleration opportunities in the area of math. Utilizing student-centered instructional practices, students will have the opportunity to practice and develop skills in core areas of mathematics essential to grade-level success. Students will be problem-solvers in this workshop, partnering with peers to take on mathematical challenges that will develop skills related to number sense. Critical thinking skills will be put to use as students deepen their understanding of expressions and equations as well as the nuances of ratio and proportional relationships. Collaboration with peers in small groups will provide opportunities for students to develop a deeper understanding of topics while gaining confidence in their mathematical abilities.
