Class Description: 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 week's 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. Books we may use: The Virginian, Making Money, I, Robot, Jane Eyre, Audacity, River Between Us, Kindred, Walt Whitman's Poetry and various short stories. Optional Half Credit Class: Use this as a literature class and not be responsible for the writing component offered. Tuition includes photocopies and printing supplies along with their writing notebook.
