I am offering this class to support 10-12th graders who want to explore classic and contemporary literature in an informal setting. I am a certified 7-12 English teacher and have experience with making literature come alive for students of all ages. I have training in teaching both middle school and high school language arts and offer students a way of exploring literature.
