Reading & Writing
CRITICAL READING & VOCABULARY
With the advent of accessible and advanced technology, proper reading comprehension is quickly becoming a skill that is rarer and more valuable than it was before. M2M’s Critical Reading & Vocabulary course is designed to help students improve their reading skills by focusing on more advanced writing, such as that found in scholarly periodicals and classic novels. We teach students to effectively summarize and analyze complex pieces, while integrating vocabulary studies which are so important to success by exposing students to more refined writing, the Critical Reading & Vocabulary course also helps students learn to express their own ideas more effectively. This wide-reaching course is intended to improve all facets of students’ language arts skills, making them stronger readers, speakers, and writers.
M2M WRITER'S WORKSHOP
The Writer's Workshop program is designed to help students develop the skills necessary to write in each of the four major categories of academic writing: expository, persuasive, narrative, and descriptive. One-on-one counseling provides students with individual attention, and teachers work to identify and help improve specific problem areas. Depending on the student, the focus of the Workshop can range from organizing the essay, brainstorming, writing effective sentences, or grammar skills. Students are taught to analyze information and make effective connections, which prepares them for open-ended and essay questions on standardized tests such as the PARCC and New SAT I, as well as for school assignments and college application essays.
