Course Descriptions

SAT/PSAT Review [Math & Verbal]: Beginning with a diagnostic, and followed by weekly drills, students will learn the types of questions they will encounter; get advice about choosing a multiple choice answer; how to detect distracters; and, how to pace yourself with increasingly difficult questions.

Engineering Options: This fun nine-week course offers an introduction to engineering and research methodology through hands on experimental data acquisition and analysis. The course is designed to help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills; skills extremely valuable in the transition to college and beyond. The course projects will focus on engineering and science topics relevant to student interests. Students will work in groups during hands on projects and when presenting design solutions.

Digital Photography:This course offers a beginner’s introduction on the topic of Geographic Information Systems production process from data acquisition and modeling to editing, analysis and cartographic output. The course will use data collected by students participating in the Newtown Creek analysis project, among other data sources, for a final mapping exercise.

Art in New York City: Each semester our art educator chooses a theme, perhaps, exploring self-portraiture through a variety of media (drawing, photography, printmaking, collage, etc). Each student will complete her/his own project which will correspond with some of the exhibitions that will be on view at the Museums we visit. A professional art historian and guide/teacher will lead lectures and field trips to both MoMA and the MoMA-owned P.S. 1.

Digital Photography: This class is an overview of the crowded field of digital photography. In this hands-on class, you will learn the components of composition and manipulation of digital images. You will learn the ins- and outs of the profession from a professional photographer.

Spoken Word: In this class, students will improve their writing skills. They will explore different styles of writing—prose and poetry. At the end of this workshop, they will present their published work at the end of the year celebration.

Latin Dancing: An excellent opportunity to learn new steps and meet other students who really enjoy music and dancing. You can also join in the end-of-year ceremony at LaGuardia’s Little Theatre on December 13th, by performing all the dances you have learned! We will also have input from professional dancers on the history, theory and technique of dance.
