Students read culturally-relevant short stories to further develop their reading, communication, and literacy skills.
Improve Reading Skills
Discover the Joy of Reading
Our Humanities course fosters literacy and critical thinking by exploring current issues. Students collaborate, read and discuss diverse texts (e.g. short stories, news articles, graphic novels) to develop informed opinions, devise solutions, and address community challenges. Final products in each class will allow students to demonstrate their learning and understanding in meaningful ways in front of their peers, families and potentially other community members.
Our program aims to help students improve their reading and writing skills and develop a love for learning. In the short term, we want to make reading more engaging and enjoyable, and enhance their comprehension skills. In the long term, our goal is to build their confidence, broaden their perspectives, and prepare them for success in college and beyond. We’re excited to see our Aim High students graduate on time and achieve their dreams, regardless of their backgrounds.
