Class Experience

Students will practice listening critically. They will take time to identify and understand their reactions to events and characters in books. They will learn to apply the thoughts, feelings, and observations they make while reading to their lives and the world around them. 
Students are responsible for reading the weekly chapters before class. Students can read the book on their own, have someone else read it with or to them, or listen to an audio book.

This novel contains disturbing scenes such as graphic war violence, euthanasia, infanticide, and mild sexual references. I highly suggest that parents read an online review of the book on Common Sense Media and/or pre-read the book.
