Need some extra help with an essay or other English/Language Arts assignment? Mr. Puhr, English and Language Arts teacher for grades 6-8, will provide both individual and group assistance in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. Additional help will be available after school, but no new work (besides homework, of course!) will be assigned. This club is a great opportunity to further develop a variety of English-related skills. Both domestic and international students are encouraged to join!

Grammar

● Reviewing fundamental topics, such as the parts of speech

Notetaking

● Annotating a text in order to better concentrate on a reading

Speaking

● Organizing and memorizing an oral presentation
● Practicing a speech in order to follow time restraints, eye contact, etc.
