Language Arts Triathlon 5-6

Summer Language Arts

In this course, students will build advanced grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills by solving engaging puzzles and competing in daily language arts challenges with their classmates. Through these daily activities, students will level-up their mastery of essential skills for reading and writing like a pro.

Each day of class includes time dedicated to each of three "events" that students will compete in during the Language Arts Triathlon on the final day of class:

  • Grammar: Students will investigate a grammar concept and use their new understanding to solve a daily puzzle. Concepts begin with essential skills for recognizing parts of speech and culminate in a deep analysis of sentence structure.
  • Vocabulary: Each day, students will gain skills for decoding advanced vocabulary as they explore etymology and word roots through engaging vocabulary puzzles.
  • Writing: Students will build their writing skills by advancing through a series of increasingly challenging tasks, from constructing clear sentences to writing a strong paragraph for an essay.

The final day of class is the Language Arts Triathlon, an engaging, collaborative competition where students will put their skills to the test in a battle of words! Through this event, students will measure their progress, both against themselves and in friendly competition with their classmates.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

AoPS Academy has provided a wonderful opportunity for my children to advance and hone their knowledge and skills in mathematics.  My children have attended for a few years now, and they love it. They always look forward to attending class. I truly admire the hard work and dedication of all of the staff towards making AoPS Academy a center of excellence for math and language arts.  Both of my sons, one in high school and one in middle school, are ahead of their schoolmates in their math classes.  Not only that, they have both developed a love for this subject aided by the exposure they have received at AoPS Academy. They enjoy the interactive method of teaching, and look forward to their classes. The courses offered at AoPS Academy keep them engaged and challenged. The focus on high achieving students, along with their selective admissions standards, helps to maintain high standards. I have many business associates and friends around the United States, and have told them about AoPS Academy. They are so envious that we have such a wonderful opportunity for such rigorous instruction with the Art of Problem Solving world class curriculum. I look forward to the day when there will be an AoPS Academy in every major city in the country.
