French 1A - $125 / semester 1.5 hours
Instructor: Mrs. Beth Kinnon
Learn French 1A with a live tutor and other students in an environment that allows for communicative practice and interaction. This class is open to middle and high school students and will cover the first half of the high school French 1 course, allowing for a solid ndation and a less demanding workload, which may be especially desirable for students who are also learning Latin in CC. We'll aim to spend a maximum of class time on speaking and listening skills so your student can practice the writing and reading at home. We'll also learn culture by tasting and seeing with food, video clips, and projects. Class will meet for 1 1/2 hours on Thursday and require another 2-3 hours a week of home study to complete half a high school credit in one year.
Most students choose to learn French because of the lovely French culture, food, pastries, etc., but in class they will learn that French is spoken in so many more places than just Europe! Québec, Haiti, Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana in the Americas; Sénégal, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Congo, Madagascar, Mali, Niger, Cameroon, Chad, and more in Africa - learning French will truly open their eyes to so many places and peoples of God's world.
Classical Literature in World History 1 - $100/semester
Instructor: Mrs. Jennifer Drury
Under Construction: Description and info coming soon
Beginning Guitar $100/semester (single semester class– will repeat in the spring)
Instructor: Mr. Jon Nicholson
Over the course of this semester, students will be taught how to play guitar from the ground up (though even a relatively experienced guitarist will probably get at last their money's worth from this class). The class will focus mainly on guitar chords; strumming techniques; and all of the basic music theory needed for students to play chord charts, improvise, write music, accompany other musicians/singers, and continue to teach themselves independently after the class is over. This class will involve no homework except for very light studying and minimal practicing at home. Classes will be built mostly around learning and practicing worship songs together. No text is needed, but instructor will make a point to work in a lot of the music theory covered in the Challenge I Math in Motion music book in order to give it a practical application. Each student will need to supply his or her own guitar. Instructor would also like students to bring guitar picks and, if possible, a tuner.
Introduction to Voice $130/semester (minimum # of 8 students required)
Instructor: Ms. Bethany Sheats
The human voice is a complex mechanism capable of great expression, producing a range of sounds from basic speech to the highly athletic act of singing over an orchestra, and above all else, meaningful communication. The goal of the course is to have the student experience the joy of singing and to become a lifelong learner. To this end, this class will help the student develop fundamental musical skills, a basic understanding of vocal technique, music appreciation, listening and evaluation skills, technique and expressive abilities. This course is suitable to students with no prior musical training. The class will seek to cultivate a solid and reliable singing technique, teaching the student to use their voice in effective and expressive singing, while developing performance skills. Students will perform as a group and individually for the class. The class will include some basic music theory instruction such as meter, rhythm, tempo, keys, clefs, and dynamics as well as an overview of musical styles, range, vocal anatomy, breathing, tone production, placement, and diction.
Classsical Conversations Courses (for students participation in CC Challenge program)
Latin Level A, B, & 1
LTW A, B, 1
