Boundless Online English
BOUNDLESS ONLINE ENGLISH
ANNOUNCING OUR 28-DAY, ONLINE ENGLISH PROGRAM
JULY 3rd – JULY 31st, 2020
Academic and Applied levels – Grade 9-12
The theme of the course is Choose Your Own Adventure. This means that students can largely direct the content of their learning, following their passions on a unique learning journey where they feel a keen sense of ownership and wonder.
It will run 28-days, from July 3-July 31st
Some days will have designated check in and work times, other days will be flexible. Students should count on working an average of just under four hours a day. Some days will be full; some days will be free.
OUR EDUCATIONAL APPROACH
The course will have a mix of synchronous, asynchronous, and independent learning.
Synchronous is live learning. Teachers and students are together in a virtual classroom. We will do some whole class sessions, but also employ synchronous learning in smaller groups and individually.
Asynchronous learning is more flexible and involves students learning on their own time from teacher prepared resources. We’ll do lots of this too, as some students prefer the independence and flexibility of this to synchronous learning.
CLASS SIZE & TEACHER RATIO
Each cohort of 20 kids shall be taught by one course Director, plus one other Boundless teacher whose exclusive purpose in life is to provide one-to-one support when needed.
The Course Directors are Jim Risk and Tony Rupoli, two of the best English teachers in Ontario. Jimmy runs the English Department at Bell High School in Ottawa. Tony is our former Principal and the pioneer of Boundless English six years ago.
THE VIRTUES OF BOUNDLESS ONLINE ENGLISH
The first is simply the fact that both teachers are brilliant, imaginative, and absolute wizards in designing curriculum.
The second is that this online course shall be imbued with Boundless spirit. We promise panache and creativity.
If your child needs a great deal of individual support, we cannot provide this the way our Boundless families have come to expect in the past. If your child procrastinates, we will do our best, but we will be limited in our capacity to chase.
$1,000. No HST charged. Families pay for and order the books, provide their own computer and must ensure a decent internet connection.
Please call or email us, and we’ll get the ball rolling.
Thank you for helping R become a more self-assured, successful teenager!
