7th-8th English

Each class is about 6-8 weeks of condensed, self-paced course content with a main purpose of providing instruction to fill in gaps in knowledge and skills and provide a foundation for future success. On a rare occasion, successful completion of a summer course may serve as the needed pre-requisite course content for fall placement in a course of interest with exception of the Phonics, Basic Grammar, and Basic Arithmetic classes. These situations will be handled on a case by case basis.

The course curriculum and assignments will be detailed daily and weekly in Canvas with the expectation of all course material to be completed by August 13, 2022. However, these are “self-paced” courses with recorded lessons (no live teacher, with the exception of the Phonics, Basic Grammar, and Basic Arithmetic classes), so students may complete and submit the work at their discretion but must have all assignments, quizzes, and tests submitted by the August 13th deadline. Students MUST maintain a minimum of 70% proficiency in order to progress through the learning modules.



April 12th - June 10th, 2022  

Registration will be open from April 12th - June 10th, 2022. The Canvas class for Basic Grammar, Basic Arithmetic, Junior High Math classes, Pre-algebra, and 7/8 English will be accessible June 13th, 2022 through August 13 , 2022.

The 1st -2nd and 3rd -5th Phonics classes will be accessible June 20th through August 6th , 2022. Families NEW to FPA will be able to register students after submitting an application in Blackbaud, paying the $225 enrollment fee and clicking on the “Buy Now” button for the class.

PHONICS 1ST - 2ND GRADE

Using the Victory Drill Book, students will study and practice the phonetic approach to reading words with short vowels, consonant blends, and long vowels. This course covers the foundation of reading as the student begins to build decoding skills to use as the reading level becomes more complex. This course is intended for students entering the 1st or 2nd grade and serves as an opportunity to build or refresh foundational phonics skills needed for reading.

In addition to the recorded lessons, there will be ONE HOUR of LIVE instruction weekly at 10:00 AM CT on Wednesdays June 22nd through August 3rd that will provide an opportunity for students to practice learned skills and receive teacher feedback on progress.

Required book: Victory Drill Book 9781576756560



BASIC ARITHMETIC

Basic Arithmetic is a class to assist students in building confidence in Arithmetic as they enter Freedom Project Academy. The course content focuses on building fundamental Arithmetic skills and drilling math facts. Concepts include procedures and vocabulary relating to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Studying place value, rounding, creating and reading number lines, comparisons of numbers and procedures, word problems and fractions; students will become proficient in all areas.

While some content may be review, teaching will focus on proper solving of algorithms and establishing work habits that demonstrate mastery. Math fact drills will include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division through ten for third graders, and twelve for fourth, fifth, and 6th graders.

Students will attend live class once a week and complete four subsequent recorded classes and homework.




JUNIOR HIGH MATH III

Students will view around 30-36 hours of recorded instruction and complete daily/weekly assignments and tests as noted on the assignments posted in Canvas. Employing a progressive and structured approach, students will learn arithmetic calculation and be introduced to pre-algebra.

Students will specifically learn about solving word problems, adding/subtracting/multiplying fractions, equivalent fractions, repeating decimals, scientific notation, multiplying algebraic terms, and more. Continuous review built into each problem set builds solid retention.

Effective pacing would have students complete 5-6 lessons each week and do the selected problem set for the best development of strong math skills. This is a “Bridge” course for students desiring to strengthen their math skills in preparation for Pre-Algebra.


PHONICS 3RD - 5TH GRADE

Covering the second half of the Victory Drill Book, students will study digraphs (th, sh, ch, wh) and dipthongs (two vowels in the same syllable with a close relationship that causes each of the vowels to lose its pure quality, i.e., oi). Students will have the opportunity to practice decoding and reading two and three-syllable words so that they are successful when reading increasing complex literature and texts.

In addition to the recorded lessons, there will be ONE HOUR of LIVE instruction weekly at 11:00 AM CT on Wednesdays June 22nd through August 3rd that will provide an opportunity for students to practice learned skills and receive teacher feedback on progress.
