Critical Thinking and Presentation Class

The Critical Thinking and Presentation Class follows the same principals as the Writing class with a focus on verbal communication instead of written communication. In this class, students will learn the importance of professional and academic presentations. They will study pronunciation, voice projection, intonation, and form as well as receive instruction on how to use different forms of presentation software and which media are appropriate for different topics of presentation.

Reading Club: Grades 1-7

Students in the reading club will be matched in classes that are appropriate to their level of reading skill and age. The class is designed to have students read and interact with books and get them enjoying reading while teaching them the strategies necessary to improve their literacy skills. Students will engage in class readings, discussions, home reading, novel activities, vocabulary games and worksheets and written responses of varying lengths and complexity. Students enrolled in this program see a dramatic change in their written and verbal communication skills as well as significant increase in their reading level and abilities.

Literature Circles: Grades 8-12

The Literature Circle class is designed around the Ontario Curriculum expectations for intermediate to senior students. Students are expected to be able to independently and within a group read, assess, analyse and interpret a complex novel using a variety of strategies. The Literature Circle class divides students up into groups based on their current abilities and challenges them to work together to read and analyse a novel.

IELTS/ TOEIC/ TOEFL Preparation

Group classes focusing on preparing for English skills tests for high school, university, and adult students. Classes are designed to break down the various parts of the test and provide ample practice to help students hone their English skills and gain confidence in their abilities.
