Ready for High School


Ready for High School Literacy

This course utilizes a disciplinary literacy approach that teaches students strategies for reading and understanding complex texts in different subject areas. Students learn to develop and defend ideas, both orally and in writing, in high school-level subjects such as English, history and science.

The unit structure conforms to the framework of the Literacy Design Collaborative which addresses college- and career-readiness standards.


Ready for High School Math

This course emphasizes understanding of mathematics concepts rather than just memorizing procedures. Students learn why to use a certain formula or method to solve a problem. By engaging students in real-world applications, Ready for High School Math develops critical thinking skills that students will use throughout their high school studies.

The course consists of eight units, culminating in a capstone project that emphasizes synthesis of concepts.
