Architecture4Kids 2 | 6-8 | 10:40 -- 11:25 | Greg Gurevich | Fall 19 For 12-14 years old it is a chance to learn the basics of architecture, how buildings work, how they are built through drawing and calculations. Students will learn how to assemble their own creations. Materials to be used: lego, wood, paper, cardboard, duct tape, straws, tooth pics, leaves and clay. |

English 6 | 5-6 | 9:50 - 10:35 | Aidan O Connor | Fall 19 ELA 6 will be a reading and writing enhancement course based on the sixth-grade level. The class may also be feasible for advanced 5th-grade students. The Reading aspect of the course will be roughly 1/3 non-fiction material and 2/3 fiction material. It will focus on building advanced comprehension skills such as identifying motifs, arguments, theses, and the author\'s inspirations and goals. The class will also prepare students for the 6th grade State ELA Exam with test strategies, explanation of the exam, and practice. The writing aspect of the course will split its focus between persuasive, fact-based writing and creative, personal-based writing. The class will also feature a small amount of grammar. Assignments will include persuasive essays, personal essays, literary-response essays, and poetry. The first half of the course will lean towards persuasive, fact-based writing (research papers, persuasive writing), the class will then send some time prepping for the State Exam in April and then will move to more creative processes in the tail end of the course. Expect ~1 hour of homework per week, mostly writing based. Feel free to contact me with any questions about the course. |

Geography/History 1 | 5-7 | 11:30 - 12:30 | Antonina Lifshits | Fall 19 This class will continue for the most part looking at the history of the world chronologically, starting from the period of the late 18 th century onwards. We will start with the subjects of American and French revolutions and continue onto the history of the 19 th century. We shall, however, also re-trace our steps and go back to the history of China, India, Japan and other non-European countries in 16-18 th century and some other parts of the world. The students will be offered to do their own presentations on historical figures or events. However, this year I would also like to incorporate in our classes a light version of the book club/debate units and have some more candid discussions of issues, rather then just interesting facts. |

Russian 5/6 | 5-6 | 1:10 -- 1:55 | Nadezhda Zhavoronkina | Fall 19 The curriculum of this class is best fitted for emerging readers. We will continue reading, retelling and discussing simple (but meaningful) stories, learn poems by heart and get acquainted with rich possibilities of Russian idioms. The focus of the class, however, will be on writing and basic grammar. This class will reinforce reading skills, enrich vocabulary, as well as encourage our students to express their thoughts and observations correctly and coherently. |

Russian 6/7 | 6-7 | 2:00 - 2:45 | Nadezhda Zhavoronkina | Fall 19 This course is designed for sixth/seventh grades bilingual students with a strong foundation in Russian. It aims to increase students\' reading and speaking proficiency to an advanced level. Students will continue studying Russian orthography. During this semester, they will practice writing paragraphs and short stories. Exercises will develop the child\'s active and passive vocabulary. Regular homework will include reading short stories, composing and answering questions, performing simple grammar exercises and memorizing pieces of poetry to complement language proficiency. The exposure to and study of contemporary and classical literature will continue complementing the technical aspects of the course, thereby developing students\' knowledge and understanding of Russian culture. |

Russian 8/9 | 7-9 | 1:00 -- 2:00 | Antonina Lifshits | Fall 19 This year we would like to offer a new format for our Russian class. This class for older students will be focusing on reading and analyzing plays and poetry as well as on writing plays and/or movie scripts based on various books and stories of students\' choice. Although we will certainly still pay attention to grammar and spelling, we will mainly focus on active reading and composition. Working individually and in groups the students will create their own texts, which may be eventually turned into our School\'s theatre production or individual short movies. The additional segment of this class will be dedicated to studying up for a Russian AP test. Succeeding in this test will allow our older students to add an extra class to their list of achievements for college. |

SHSAT_Practice_Tests 19 | 7 | 10:40 -- 12:40 | Aidan O Connor | Fall 19 The curriculum includes complete topics coverage as well as systematic SHSAT preparation.

Tests_preparation Hunter | 6 | 12:50 - 2:20 | Aidan O Connor | Fall 19 The course should only be taken by students who are planning on taking the exam in January 2020 and who want to get a head start on building the foundations necessary to succeed on the Hunter Entrance Exam. We will cover the three sections of the exam: Reading, Writing, and Math. The Reading portion will include reading comprehension of high-level (~8th grade) fiction. It will mainly feature works from the turn of the 20th century. The writing will focus on writing a strong 5-paragraph personal essay within time constraints. The Math will focus on creative problem solving and cover a range of topics from basic algebra and geometry to probability and pattern recognition. The math will feature problems similar to those seen on statewide Math contests. Since this course is for 5th graders, it will focus first on introducing all of these concepts before moving on to mastering them, which will take a significant amount of time and work. The course will be focused and serious with homework assigned each week that must be completed. Parents should make sure students enter the course with a serious commitment to it. Students should expect an hour of homework per week. |

Math Math - 6 | 6 | 12:30 - 13:30 | Dr. Grigory Portnov | At this level, math students need to know and really understand basic laws and rules of algebra. This program teaches the algebraic rules from the simplest to more advanced, formulas and applications. The program includes many types of word problems and shows how they can be solved. Besides Algebra, the program includes several enrichment topics such as Mathematical Induction, Combinatorics, Logic games, Fibonacci sequence.. Students learn to use logical reasoning, systematic approaches to problem solving, calculations and algebraic transformations. This class also prepares students for the admission tests into the selective High Schools. This program is targeted to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students and is aligned with Focal points of Standards suggested by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) This class also prepares students for the admission tests to the selective High Schools. |

Math Math-7 | 7 | 18:00 - 19:00 | Dr. Grigory Portnov | The main goal of our classes for the Middle School grades is to make sure that at this level, math students know and really understand basic laws and rules of Algebra. Besides Algebra, the program includes several advanced topics, such as Mathematical Induction, Combinatorics, Logical games, Fibonacci sequence. Students are expected to use basics of Algebra and Geometry effectively in different situations, starting with taking multiple-choice tests, where everything should be done quickly, and ending with solving complicated problems from Math Olympiads, that require a non-routine approach and creative thinking. SchoolPlus test preparation classes differ from other test preparation programs. Students not only master test-taking techniques, but also study Mathematics as a subject. Without good understanding of math concepts and how they are interconnected, improvement of their score beyond a certain point becomes impossible. In our opinion, the serious and systematic studying of Mathematics is the only way to achieve a high score. This program for upper middle school is targeted to 7th and 8th grade students and is aligned with Focal points of Standards suggested by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This class also prepares students for the admission tests to the selective High Schools. |
