THINK & WRITE
THINK & WRITE specializes in teaching writing and reading to all different age groups. This writing program is to mainly promote student’s thought processes including analytical, and critical thinking skills.
The students are required to write an essay per week that pertains to a reading for that week. In addition, the students are given a set number of vocabulary words to memorize throughout the week and are also required to take the weekly vocabulary test.
The reading list is customized for each class by the students’ learning and reading levels and our extensive reading list consists of classical novels, contemporary fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, plays, and essays.
In this writing program, students learn to compose all different types of writing including poetry, literary response essays, expository essays, and research papers.
