Great readers unite! I am so very proud to adapt my own 6-week Spar Lit Jr 6: Understanding Harriet the Spy Through Debate into a 6 session 2-week class with exactly the same lessons and content as the long term 6-week version of the class. Same lessons, same enjoyment of the class except we get to finish the book faster!

Students will be required to read the portions of the text we will be considering for the upcoming week. Optional homework assignments will be given after each class. If students are able to complete the homework a detailed response will be sent to each learner.
Paper and pencil always! Copies of Harriet the Spy are available on Amazon or second-hand through Thriftbooks, and at Libraries everywhere. Any edition of the book is fine for this class.
I will be in touch with learners and parents throughout the course to give feedback on student progress.
