Readers Theater for Grades 4-5

Summer Language Arts

Students take to the stage in this exciting, interactive reading course designed for students entering grade 4 or 5! Students will develop important language arts skills while working together to write, rehearse, and perform their very own plays. During class, students engage with several different texts through deep, independent reading and guided analysis. The class features a Newbery-winning longer work that students read both in class and at home, and multiple shorter pieces that we close-read together in class. Each day also features interactive games and public speaking exercises, including class discussion, debate, readers theater, and competitive team activities.

During the two weeks, students will read The One and Only Ivan by K. A. Applegate. They will also learn advanced literary skills that will help them write their scripts, such as how to pitch their stories and format their writing. They will conclude the class by performing their final work.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day. Summer 2020 courses will run online for all sessions.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
