This summer workshop provides YuCai students with a multi-disciplined and dynamic way of expressing themselves in an English language group setting. They will learn to engage in and contribute to the lively, creative process of shared inquiry using The Great Books Foundation materials and methods. The teacher acts as a skilled leader guiding the students to their own individual conclusions in the context of spirited group discussions.
Studies show that students can expect higher scores on the SAT, ACT and TOEFL tests after completing this course; the main purpose of this course, however, is to increase English fluency and to prepare the student for study abroad by immersion in the Western-style classroom.
The Great Books curriculum is used at Harvard, Stanford, St. John’s and Columbia. This course is the perfect stepping stone to an International Baccalaureate (IB) high school or to the study of liberal arts at college or university level.
