Our 2022 - 2023 year-long English course will focus on grammar and the structural elements of writing.  This class will also include reading literature and writing responses to that literature.  The purpose of this course is to help demystify some of the written rules of the English language and to help the students use clarity and logic in their writing. They will also have a chance to research topics important to them.  In our English courses at City Kids, we always end with Shakespeare, so our final eight weeks (or so) will be dedicated to reading age appropriate versions of Shakespeare.  The students also have a chance to edit the play in order to make it more modern and fun!

Grammar
