What 13 days of English Looks Like
While we would love to give you a day-to-day schedule, the curriculum of each course depends on the choice of novel, the weather, the mix of grade levels in the class and other variables. However, every student can expect the following:
Nine or ten half-days of study-time, assignments, novel reading and essay writing time.
One or two nights of camping with their group on the river for team building. Students will start their novel around a campfire under the stars.
He learned how to write, how to interpret, how to better describe, how to focus and the list goes on. It was truly an AHA moment for him and he loved every minute of it.
If only I could have been taught this way and learned how to write essays properly earlier- OH the pain and time I could have saved myself!! Can you believe I’m this excited about English? Screw the regular classroom, I’m going back for grade 12!
Other Course Details
English at Boundless is co-ed and open to any high school student who is in grade 9-12 or doing a “victory lap.” The only exception is grade 8 graduates—if a student is entering grade 9 in September, we have Summer Outdoor Adventure credit courses as an amazing alternative to English.
You earn bona fide, Ontario High School credits that count towards earning your diploma. We also offer them at every grade and level so they will also count towards applications to University or College.
Upon completion of the course, students receive a report of achievement (report card) with a grade. A second copy is sent to the home school, where the mark is input into the student’s transcript.
Students are provided with all necessary equipment and supplies needed for the course from pens and novels to tents and canoes. Bring some clothes and a willingness to try something new and we provide the rest.
