Whether a work of art, a wall of text, or a web of equations, reading is the skill which bridges all learning. In this camp, students will experiment with the many ways in which reading connects us to the world. Using close examination of grade-level appropriate works of literature, small group writing workshops, and hands-on production of varied works combining creative writing and visual art, students will engage in ways to activate reading comprehension, foster stronger written communication skills, and bolster creativity while collaborating with peers. All learners welcome.
