Middle School Summer Reading Boot Camp (Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters)

Class
Melissa L. - Registered IEW Instructor
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(330)
In this one-week follow-up course, students who've read book one will continue by reading and discussing Percy Jackson and the crazy things that happen to him in book two.

Class experience

*Develop close reading skills and seek a deeper understanding of passages, character interactions, and events.
*Recognizing the events, situations, circumstances, and basic elements that shape the story.
*Problem-solving and critical-thinking when "decoding" why certain issues occur and/or why characters behave a certain way.
*Avoiding the dreaded "summer slide".
I LOVE reading! So much so, that I went to school for a degree in English, am certified in TEFL and TESOL, and have made a career out of it. But putting all that aside, I am a homeschool mom to two who has spent years teaching my own children to love and enjoy reading. The Percy Jackson series is a great introduction to fictional mythology and learning about the five elements of literature. Plus, it's a blast to read!
I truly hope to encourage many more students to enjoy the written word and have found that a Socratic seminar has been the best way to achieve this goal. If I'm not teaching, you can always find me nearby with my nose stuck in a book. And yes, you can find me poolside reading these books alongside your child. :)
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will need a copy of "The Sea of Monsters" by Rick Riordan.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Because this is a Bootcamp-style class, students will need to stay on top of their reading. Normally, your child would have a week to complete a certain number of pages or chapters so I recommend they get started on their reading before the session begins.
