The Bridge Writing: Literature and Composition – Year 1 - Grades: 9-12 Dianna de Valle

In the literature portion of this course, students will be reading stories from an American Literature Sampler and a British Literature Sampler to acquaint them with the richness of the written word.  We will study works from various genres and classify works according to their literary time periods. Critical reading comprehension skills will be learned and practiced as we work to read “between the lines” in an effort to understand not only what was said, but what was meant by the author.  Students will be taught how to identify structural elements such as theme, plot, conflicts, setting, and character types.  Other important literary analysis aspects such as tone, imagery, and symbolism will be mastered along with identification of simile, metaphor, personification, and much more.

 

Writing instruction will begin with students being introduced to and taught the 10 step writing process. The first semester focuses on the technical aspects of writing as students acquire and engage the necessary skills for writing persuasive, narrative, and compare/contrast essays.  The second semester will explore various fun and imaginative writing processes and activities to help with the more creative side of writing.  During the second semester students will also be taught the incremental development process for writing an MLA format research paper including topic, thesis, research and outline development. This class also has a fair amount of SAT prep work such as prompted timed writings, analogy practice and vocabulary enrichment.  In an effort to keep the student’s grammar skills sharp, we have a daily grammar review.

The main goal of this class is to foster a love and understanding for literature and writing within the student by giving them the necessary tools and instruction.  There will be 10 payments of $55 each for the class.  The curriculum will be provided by the teacher for a one-time rental fee of $55. You may send completed registration form and first month’s tuition to Dianna de Valle, 22090 Bryantwood Ct. Hockley, TX 77447.  You may contact Dianna by email at devalleo [at] aol [dot] com or call her at 281-798-7715.

 

The Bridge Writing: Literature and Composition -- Year 2 Grades: 10-12 Dianna de Valle

The literature portion of this course engages the student in careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature from various genres and periods ranging from the fifteenth to the twenty-first century. Through the close reading of selected texts, the student will deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure to their readers.  As the student reads, they will consider a work’s structure, style, and theme, as well as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone.  The student will be introduced to the art of reading deliberately and thoroughly, taking time to understand a work’s complexity, to absorb its richness of meaning, and to fully comprehend how that meaning is embodied in literary form. 

Using a 10 step writing process, students will write to understand a literary work, but will also engage in free writing and creative writing.  We will also learn and practice many different patterns of development for essays such as descriptive, persuasive, compare/contrast, illustrative, narrative, process analysis and more.  This class also has a fair amount of SAT prep work such as prompted timed writings, analogy practice and vocabulary enrichment.  In an effort to keep the student’s grammar skills sharp, we have a daily grammar review.

The main goal of this class is to prepare the student for college level literature and writing.  Although not required, students will be prepared to take the AP Literature and Composition Exam and/or the CLEP Exam at the end of the year, which gives them the opportunity to earn 3-6 hours of college level English credits.  The curriculum will be provided by the teacher for a one-time rental charge of $60. There will be 10 payments of $60.00 each for the class.  You may send completed registration form and first month’s tuition to Dianna de Valle, 22090 Bryantwood Ct.  Hockley, TX 77447.  You may contact Dianna by email at devalleo [at] aol [dot] or call her at 281-798-7715.

Mathematics


Saxon Math
Many HIS math teachers use DIVE (Digital Interactive Video Education) Math CD-ROMs.  On your computer you watch as Dr. David Shormann writes on a dry erase board and hear him explain the problem solution process. The result is a “movie” of the lecture with the voice and writing perfectly synchronized.  There is no teacher in the way, so the student sees exactly what the teacher is writing as it is being written.  The student canpause, rewind, and fast-forward the lecture with a click of the mouse.  Each lecture is saved as a separate file so the student can easily access previously taught lectures that need to be reviewed. Math CDs can be purchased for $50 per course.  Go to Dive Into Math to see a demo or to place an order.  Call 832-239-5121 for more information.  Although it is not necessary to be in a class when using DIVE CDs, many parents find it very beneficial to have someone to whom their child is accountable and someone of whom the student can ask questions.

Reading/Spelling

 

Elementary Spelling and Reading Comprehension – Kimberly King

This class uses basic phonetic spellings, reliable patterns and rules to learn to spell a high percentage of words.  Spelling is a skill that needs to be taught formally since students do not always automatically acquire the patterns of language naturally.  The same knowledge will also reinforce patterns for reading.  We will be using MCI Aqua for reading, and Logic of English Essentials Second edition.

Expectations: We will spend 30 minutes of each class doing oral language and listening comprehension exercises to help address processing and oral language disorders. We will learn spelling rules and how to use them in writing.  Then we will spend 30 minutes working on reading comprehension. The class will be 1 hour.

Requirements: Students are to practice spelling words on their own how ever they best learn. (Visually, Auditory, or Kinesthetic)  Occasionally, there will be worksheets to help reinforce what we learn. The homework for reading will be 2-3 days a week for about 20-30 minutes.

Supplies: Spelling journal (purchased through me $6.00), index cards, index card holder, MCI Comprehension Aqua (purchase through me $25.00), small 3-ringed binder, and notebook paper.

Payments: The class is $450 for the year (10-$45 payments from July through April), as well as a building use fee of $30 per semester. 

 Parent help will be needed at home to get the most out of this course.  

Registration and payments should be mailed to Kimberly King, 19206 Paradise Summit, Tomball 77377. She can be contacted at kimking0121 [at] icloud [dot] com or call 281-750-6509.
