Math & English Classes

Course Description:

A course exploring the principles, practices, and standards, in teaching Mathematics and English to young children ages 6 to 11. An emphasis will be placed on designing a developmentally appropriate integrated Math and English curriculum that includes appropriate content, processes, and materials.

Our course will provide the students with the most effective methods and strategies to help children get their hands on Math & English Language. It is designed to improve their skills, knowledge, and confidence though differentiated instruction in a group setting and each of the student can complete the course at their own pace. 

If reading came naturally, teaching reading would either be a much easier job or not required. Children would learn to read as readily as they learn to speak. Teachers would only need to give students the chance to practice their skills. But children don't learn to read just from being exposed to books. Reading must be taught. For many children, reading must be taught explicitly and systematically, one small step at a time. That's why good teaching/teachers are so important.
