This class is designed to introduce students to Collegio, which synthesizes the core humanities –History, English, and Theology. The class is team-taught by two veteran Collegio teachers who will help students learn how Collegio works as well as provide exposure to, and practice in, the basic skills needed for classroom success. Reading, writing, research, note-taking, and test-taking will all be emphasized with a focus on practicing these skills in multiple ways over the three-week course. The course is also designed to improve reading ability in comprehension, speed, and vocabulary. Students will be required to read one common summer reading book together during class.
