Reading & Writing Camps

Novel Study Camp

Help your student discover their love of reading

Our Novel Study Camp is designed to teach students about literary elements and discuss a chosen novel in a small group setting. This camp will help students develop a variety of critical thinking techniques as well as gain an understanding of comprehension strategies and text analysis. An appropriate novel will be selected to ensure all students attending camp will benefit from the novel presented. Studies have shown that the critical analysis of longer reading materials enhances a student’s critical thinking skills. Each Novel Study class will include a combination of comprehension questions, vocabulary development, writing responses, figurative language and a final assessment. This camp is a great way to help your student discover their love of reading.  

 

*A different novel will be assigned each week.

Prepare your child for the upcoming school year!

Our experienced instructors will provide a supportive learning environment to guide students through a reading and writing journey.
