CSW Global Summer Academy

Course Descriptions

Discover and Re-discover the World through Visual Arts

Integration between social studies and arts, this course will lead students to explore their world through various art techniques, including photography, drawing, video, animation, and sculpture. In the process, they will begin to discover new connections between themselves, their worlds, and their art, using only the everyday objects and tools around them. As they will see, inspiration lies all around us! 

Academic Reading and Writing

This course is designed to introduce students to the demands and conventions of reading and writing in order to understand academic expectations at American independent schools and beyond. Students will practice academic writing, which includes paraphrasing, summarizing, quoting, organizing ideas, developing research skills, building compelling arguments, and using evidence and secondary source material. Students will also learn and use critical reading skills to get information from academic texts. They will be able to identify main points and details, determine audience and purpose, summarize, analyze, and respond to written English texts.
