Kick start your rising 9th or 10th grade student’s motor with a Humanities readiness course to get a head start on the 2019-2020 school year!  This experience exposes students to the idea that there are multiple pathways to learning and encourages them to explore ways that they can use their learning strengths to improve academic success.  We will also focus on developing grit—task persistence—and a growth mindset, proven pathways to achievement. Special focus will be given to developing reading comprehension and writing tools, in addition to practical organization, note-taking, and traditional “study” and test-preparation skills.  The course will finish by asking the students to apply their nascent skills to their Humanities summer reading texts and 9th and 10th grade course textbooks, giving students a head-start on actual first reading and writing assignments, so they can hit the ground running in English and history classes.

 

The course instructor, Steve Wermus, has taught English for 25 years, 16 of them at Tatnall.  He is known for energy and enthusiasm and for making learning provoking and fun. He looks forward to helping your student achieve to potential!
