Students will dive into rich and relevant literature while learning how authors use literary terms and devices to make their writing come to life. We will read a variety of literature including novels, short stories, and poetry. Students will be taught how to craft a literary analysis or literary response in clear and guided steps. This class pairs beautifully with the Grammar and Composition class for 6th or 7th graders to create a complete language arts block. Students should expect to spend 4 hours a week on homework. Students who took this class in 2018 - 2019 can take this class again as it is new curriculum. 

A book list will be emailed to you in June. 

We plan on reading the following: 

The Wind in the Willows

Anne of Green Gables

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh

Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen

Tuition: $280 a semester or $550 a year.
