Text levels will vary between beginning of 2nd grade and end of 4th grade. Students reading below an early 2nd grade reading level may struggle with the materials. Students will also engage in science and engineering activities and investigations focused on developing rich content knowledge.

Middle School


Math Mindset: Intended for students Entering 6th - 9th Grades

This program is geared toward students who believe mathematics is not their strength. The goal is to communicate the brain research to math students and teach them through an approach that is open, creative and visual. The term “growth mindset” comes from the work of Carol Dweck. Her studies show that everyone holds ideas about their own potential. Students with a fixed mindset are those who are more likely to give up easily, whereas students with a growth mindset are those who keep on going even when work is hard, and who are persistent. The curriculum is based on a model used at Stanford University with 81 students with a wide range of achievement levels. Students in the study demonstrated 1.6 years of growth after 18 days of instruction. (Jo Boaler, Mathematics Education Professor, Stanford University) www.youcubed.org


Academic Literacy Success: Intended for students entering 6th through 9th grade

The focus of the course is to provide students with integrated reading and writing strategies. Material selection is focused on strategies that develop vocabulary, fluency, comprehension. Students' strengths and weaknesses are addressed through whole group and small group instruction. Emphasis is placed on understanding text structure, making relevant connections to text, asking questions, inferring, summarizing, and synthesizing through independent reading, reflective journaling, written summaries and open response questions. Materials include high interest, leveled fiction and non-fiction text.

High School

Credit Recovery: Intended for students entering 10th through 12th grade

Our summer credit recovery courses are designed to create a highly supportive learning environment for students who need extra help in order to succeed. Most of our summer credit recovery program will be offered in-person directly through WWPS staff. However, if your child needs to earn credit in a class that is not offered in-person, we will work with Edgenuity to offer online options. In either scenario, classes will be taught by highly-qualified, Michigan-certified online teachers, who are endorsed in the subject area and grade-level related to your student’s credit recovery needs. We will also be offering mentors so students can receive the support they need in order to succeed.
