High School Summer School In-Person Elective Course Offerings
Description: A few high school elective courses have been proposed, but are only able to be offered if enough students sign up for the class. If you are interested in one of these courses, we encourage you to invite a friend to join to promote the class!
Students will start the course by learning the most basic crochet stitches (chaining, single crochet, double crochet). From there, students will learn how to read crochet patterns and will get to choose from an array of patterns that I provide. The course will be highly differentiated as students will choose projects that appeal to them. There may be class-wide shared projects as well, such as creating a class-quilt made from Granny Squares. Check out the flyer for this course by clicking here!
In this course you will learn the basics of cake decorating! We will begin by baking cakes from scratch, and learn how to torte, fill, and layer them. We will then learn how to make frosting and methods of how to frost cakes. In addition, we will learn how to create borders, write with icing, and decorate our cakes with a variety of decorating techniques. We will make multiple cakes throughout the summer school session that you will get to take home!
Students are also able to do A+ tutoring in the summer as well. More information will be sent to anyone that enrolls in A+ Tutoring using the enrollment link.
Elective courses each earn 0.5 credits towards graduation. Sewing, Woods, and Cake Decorating all count towards practical arts graduation requirements. Tabletop role-playing and crochet will earn general elective credits towards your graduation progress. Due to the accelerated nature of these courses, you must have perfect attendance throughout the two week course. Each class is 10 days long, and each day begins at 8 and ends at 2:30. These options are great for students that want to have fun, learn a new skill, and get ahead on their graduation credits so they can graduate early, participate in PLTW, or become a member of CTC or STA.
