What Families Are Saying
About IYE Summer Camps

 

“I attribute this three-year improvement to the IYE summer camp.”

My daughter really liked the IYE summer camp with David. It was definitely an adjustment to take a full-day class, but once she got used to the length, she enjoyed it.

She especially enjoyed having David as a teacher.

She enjoyed comparing themes and plots. It’s always fun to hear your child say that, especially with more classic works. Schools do not usually teach classics, so I really appreciate the opportunity for my daughter to study them. After taking the class, she was more interested in reading independently.

I found myself buying her more books!

After the summer, she showed big improvements in her i-Ready diagnostic for ELA (English Language Arts). The i-Ready allows students to take next-level questions. Last year, at the end of her 6th-grade year, her i-Ready ELA score was early 7th grade. This year, at the beginning of her 7th-grade year, she took the i-Ready and scored as early 10th grade. I attribute this three-year improvement to the IYE summer class.

She’s also improved in her CAASPP assessment. For the last couple of years, when she did her CAASPP writing assessment, it took her a long time to formulate her ideas. By the time she had formulated her thoughts, it was time to go home. Now she says it is easy to write out the assignments in the time permitted.

After taking the summer class, it was much easier for her to write. In other classes that she is taking, she now writes in complete sentences to answer questions. We had worked on this skill before, but she didn’t make progress in it until she took the IYE summer group class. The class really helped her see the importance of using complete sentences because David explained to her WHY the incomplete sentences did not work and why it was important for her to finish her thoughts.

It lets me understand the way Shakespeare writes.

***

I think the writing prompts are good because it gives a direction for us to think.

***

Question: What was the difference that you noticed between how this class taught Shakespeare and how your middle or high school classes have taught Shakespeare? 

Answer: In the three days class, I do feel better to understand a Shakespeare novel compared to what I’ve studied in my English class last year because with writing and reading it together in class, it is more understandable.

***

In my freshman year, we learned Romeo and Juliet and we only read excerpt of the book which is hard for us to understand the context of the excerpt. On the other hand we read the whole play in this class which gives me a better understanding of the book.

By taking this class, I do feel more comfortable about Shakespeare.

I like the prompt we received and I think the topic sentences and evidences that’s provided is helpful, too.
