Reading and Writing Poetry, Short Stories and Plays (13+) Connect 2018
From 12:00 pm to 1:50 pm |
In this class, we will explore poetry, short stories and plays. We will read and discuss a variety of material, from classic to contemporary. Students will spend some time acting and creating improvisations based on their interpretation of the literature. Students will help to choose the readings for this class from a selection of high school level texts. Each week, students will be asked to read and write a one page response to the texts as a homework assignment. The assignments will be due by the Friday prior to class so that the class discussion can be guided by the student’s understanding of the information. The out of class work will be 1-2 hours per week.
