Readers Theater 4-5

Summer Language Arts

This course is a must for upper-elementary students looking to advance their writing techniques and build high-level reading skills. Through the close study of an acclaimed play, students analyze plot and character development, and apply their learning as they write their own original scripts. To support students in developing their creativity and critical thinking skills, daily improv games are also included in every class. Not only fun, these improv exercises are proven to accelerate students’ mental agility and language skills, preparing them to stay focused and to think quickly when facing challenging tasks in the writing classroom—or anywhere in life!

Each class is divided into three major components:

  • A theatrical read-aloud of the course text, followed by a high-level discussion centered around the topic of the day.
  • An improv game and group script-writing challenge.
  • A writer’s workshop for students to develop their own writing, and have an opportunity to work directly with the teacher.

The course culminates in an exhibition of students’ work—an opportunity for students to apply their heightened communication skills and bring their writing to life in an exciting shared performance.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

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 Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after 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.
