Class Experience

Students will understand how to read a story for accuracy and understanding.  Learners will walk away from this course with an understanding of plot structure, character development, author choices, and literary study skills.  Students can expect to learn techniques and have discussions that can be directly applied to their English courses in school. 
Students will be asked to read a short story before class (usually between 4-13 pages).  This allows them to be able to be involved in the class discussions and to practice their skill development. 
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Short stories will be chosen based on US English Literature standards for 7th-11th grade. The short stories to be discussed are as follows:
-"The Gift of the Magi" (O. Henry)
-"The Monkey's Paw" (Jacobs)
-"To Build a Fire (London)
-"The Lady, or the Tiger?" (Stockton)
-"The Tell Tale Heart" (Poe)
-"The Most Dangerous Game" (Connell)
"The Lottery" (Jackson)
