Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn to identify and analyze imagery and figurative language including simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, and onomatopoeia. They will strengthen reading comprehension and analysis skills. Students will practice communication, cooperation, and leadership skills. Students will have an enjoyable reading experience and gain exposure to Korean culture and folklore. 
Students will be expected to read and take brief notes each week - including before the first class. I will provide clear instructions for note-taking upon registration.  These "conversation starter" notes will be used to guide student discussions.

When You Trap a Tiger by Tae Keller
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
When You Trap a Tiger involves a sick grandmother who eventually dies in a hospital with her family surrounding her. It's a heartbreaking scene. We will discuss death in an age appropriate way. 

Lily's teen sister, Sam, meets a girl name Jensen at the library.  Near the end of the book Lily realizes they are a couple. It's mentioned very briefly and not a focus of the plot or our discussions.
