In this class we will be reading a book a month, learning how to dig into the theme of a book and using our discussions as a basis for writing. The students will explore narrative writing, persuasive writing, compare and contrast essays, and research papers based on themes of history, sciences, government, ethics and personal journeys. The weekly homework will be the spring board for each weeks lessons, both to drive discussions and to pinpoint the areas of grammar and writing that need to be addressed. The goals of the class are to have lively discussions, to help each student recognize that they can write their thoughts in coherent forms and move them forward to their next step in their writing ability with each assignment. The books for next year are still under considerations but we will try to pick at least one from these genres: short stories, classic literature, free verse, sci-fi, historical fiction, and current fiction. OPTIONAL: Focus on Literature without the Comp for half credit, and the assignments would only include staying caught up with the reading and doing whatever writing is necessary to participate in the class discussions.
