Class Experience

Students will gain a stronger learning of the research that goes into creating a novel, Exposition including setting, characters, rising action, conflicts, turning points, climax, resolution, themes. Vocabulary in figurative language will also be focused upon. This book is learners a great opportunity to reflect on their own lives and the decisions characters in the novel make which can help us learn about making decisions and facing conflicts in our own lives.
Before the first meeting, please read up to page 124. For the second meeting please read to the end of the novel.
A copy of the book Stranded by Ben Mikaelsen. I suggest that you ordered directly through Ben mikaelsen.com. At this time Stranded is half price at $3 a copy and the author will happily autograph the book for you.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
