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 response in clear and guided steps and how to lead and participate in a group discussion. Throughout the year students will work in self-selected literature circles where choice and responsibility are emphasized. This class pairs beautifully with the Grammar and Composition classes for middle school students to create a complete language arts block. Students should expect to spend 4 hours a week on homework. Students who took this class in 2019 - 2020 can take this class again as it is new curriculum and a new format.
