Grammar studies include sentence diagramming, writing projects include an introduction to the traditional five-paragraph essay, and creative writing includes free writing and poetry. Students may take just one week, but they may benefit from enrolling in multiple weeks as lessons build on each other throughout the summer. Class instructor Mr. Jonathan Vaile has been teaching English for over 20 years. (Open to students entering grades 5 and up.)
