The JGB session my child participated in gave her a good introduction to critical thinking and discussion skills that she does not get in her regular classroom. In just four sessions, the JGB instructor got the students all talking, asking, and answering questions about the story, at a deeper level than I might have expected in such a short time. I have very fond memories of participating in JGB as a child, and I know it helped me with my reading, thinking, and writing skills. It was a great experience—my daughter loved every aspect of it.
After attending the JGB Virtual Academy fall session, my daughter’s teacher said she showed great gains in her reading scores on the i-Ready reading assessment from September to December. I credit her participation in JGB Virtual Academy as a contributing factor. Thank you!
My son certainly has enjoyed his Tuesday and Thursday afternoons engaging with you and the other students in the JGB Virtual Academy. He has really grown in his confidence and ability to engage in more mature discussions.
