Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
The writing in Responses to Literature should:
• show that they understand the main character(s) and the plot of the text
• show that they understand the overall meaning or message of the piece
• share their feelings, judgment, opinions, or evaluation based on careful reading of the text
• support their points about the characters and theme with evidence and examples from the story
• demonstrate an understanding of the historical and literary elements common to that particular time period as we’ve learned about them in class
• serve as a means of “open book” study during unit tests (at parent’s discretion)
• lend itself to a possible expansion into an essay due at a later date
• use proper grammar, word choice, transitions and clear writing.

Parents are also welcome to request content prior to the class to verify this should there be any concern.
All books are open source.
