叙述性写作

叙述性写作侧重于个人陈述,学生根据个人经历撰写文章段落和故事。学生将学习写故事时涉及的“故事线”(即铺垫,故事发展,故事高潮,故事回落和故事结尾),这是写任何故事都有的共同点。课程将教会学生使用5种不同类型的写作线索来吸引读者的注意力。叙述性写作的学习建立在学生已经上过前一堂课(描述性写作)的基础上。


重述类写作

重述类写作涉及陈述过去的事件并且这个故事是用过去时态写成的。该课程内容将包含最后两个课程中讨论的所有写作元素。学生需要完成主谓一致,同义词和介词的语法练习。同时,我们将讨论使用思维导图来帮助学生组织和探索故事的想法。


说明类写作

说明类写作是关于如何运用写作来解释一些事情的过程课程围绕如何使用过渡性和排序类词语,以及按时间顺序组织文章的重要性展开。

(G6-7 / G8-9 / G10-11)

New Horizons
 is opening Spring Break Courses to help students spend quality time studying during the holidays! These short-term intensive courses include a series of different courses, which are more interesting and full of various forms.


Spring Break Course Description





1
Creative Writing Fundamentals 
(G3 / G4-5)


Descriptive Writing

This is the first style of writing we discuss and is an opportunity for the students to expand their vocabulary around descriptive words. Introduces the concept of SHOW, TELL and Don’t TELL We employ various exercises to help the students‘ paint a picture’ in the reader’s mind using sensory language , figurative speech, and answering the 5W&H questions(who, what, where, when, why, and how)


Narrative Writing

Narrative writing focused on the personal narrative and students write paragraphs and stories based on personal experiences. Students learn about the story's Arc(Exposition, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Conclusion), which is common to any story. The student is introduced to the writing of STRONG leads using 5 different kinds of HOOKS- to grab the reader’s attention. Narrative writing builds on what was learned in the previous class.


Recount Writing

Recount Writing involves recounting a past event. The story is written in the past tense. The class reviews all elements discussed in the last two classes. Students complete exercises on subject-verb agreement, synonyms and prepositions. We discussusing mind maps to help organize and explore ideas for a story.


Procedural Writing

Procedural writing is writing to explain HOW TO do something-Transition and Sequencing words are explored as is the importance of organizing in chronological order.


Opinion Writing

The final writing style is Opinion and Persuasive writing. We discuss the reasons for having an opinion and the requirements for a successful written ‘argument’. All aspects of the four writing styles were discussed as reminders of effective writing.

 


2
Intensive Spring Writing & Grammar
(G6-7 / G8-9 / G10-11)

This is a specially designed course to quickly and efficiently improve student’s grammar and general mechanics of writing. Each class will have writing activities,grammar lectures, and discussions on the general mechanics of writing.

 

We will begin each class with a short journal writing activity and reading comprehension that will lead into the main focus of the class. The teacher will give personalized feedback and a specific response to each student for these activities, which will greatly aid them with their mechanics of writing.

 

The bulk of the class will be about 2 different aspects of grammar, with small activities and exercises specially designed to give the students an intensive and effective boost to their writing skills.

 

The last part of the class will be a short creative writing exercise designed to showcase the skills learnt in the class. This will lead up to a capstone project in the final class.

 

Every student needs to improve some aspect of writing, be it their grammar, word tenses, or how to use figurative language effectively. Even with considerable effort students need a little push to boost their writing effectively. This course is designed to do just that. There won’t be much reading, only writing. We encourage the students to write as creatively and imaginatively as possible, as long as they show us the grammar they are learning in class.

History and English Literature AP Booster
(G10-12)


AP booster classes are specially designed to give students the key skills and knowledge needed to pass the AP exams. They are intensive courses that teach students the right ways and the wrong ways to answer questions in the tests.We make sure to show the students exactly how the exams are formed and how to find the information to answer the questions properly.We also provide past years' exam paper training, time management and simulation tests.


We recommend these classes for students preparing for an exam because they are intensive and the students need some background in the subject.
