NINJA SCHOLARS ($25) Ages 9-12
** In order for this class to be fully offered, we are in need of 1-2 more adults to run it. Our current mentors have felt they can at least do a monthly book discussion and activity. If you're interested in the class, register so that we know who to communicate our plans with. We will refund your money if the full class is not able to be offered **
The Ninja Scholar class is designed to create a positive peer group that motivates and encourages learning.
Learning will be done through fun and games. Class time will include presentations, grammar, geography, art, book discussions, and games.
We will read one biography a month which will give context for all other learning. The people we will be studying are:
- Ernest Shackleton*
- Gladys Aylward*
- Lillian Trasher*
- Helen Roseveare*
- Klaus Dieter-John*
- Florence Nightingale (from The Sower Series, by David R. Collins)
- Totto Chan (A Little Girl at the Window)
*A group order will be done for these books.
Taught by: Alesha Higgins & Becca Nielson (we hope/think; please volunteer)
Time: 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
