For the above reasons, we believe summer Reading instruction is not just helpful but also necessary.
The Reading and Writing Advantage curriculum is customized to each student according to grade level, need, and ability. For example, if a student is in 9th grade and needs to improve their Reading proficiency, appropriate texts for their age will be chosen to read, analyze, and discuss. Or, if that student only needed help with writing, texts would be chosen to read, analyze, and write about. These papers would then be thoroughly proofread together with student and teacher so that the instructor can demonstrate how to optimally structure a piece of academic writing, analyze the content of written work, use rhetorical devices to engage the reader emotionally and/or rationally, and employ correct grammar. Whatever the need in Reading and Writing, our instructors can help students to amend any weaknesses or improve upon any strengths.
