Middle School English - afternoon session
Our first session has already filled up, so we are offering an afternoon session of the same class. Poetry Madness Countdown, playing with language, group and individual writing projects, classic readings, and contemporary literature are a few of the things we will explore in class. Students will learn how to analyze literature, how to write creatively, and how to write essays. Readings include a plethora of poetry, a Shakespearean play, short stories galore, and a novella if time permits. No textbook required.
