Great readers unite! I am so very proud to adapt my own 7-week Spar Lit Jr 2: Understanding Literature Through Debate--A Long Way From Chicago into an 8- session 2-week class with exactly the same lessons and content as the long term 7-week version of the class. One extra lesson, focusing on the historical background of the book, will be added to these sessions from the long term version. Otherwise, the same lessons, same enjoyment of the class except we get to finish the book...
