Advanced Level

Enrich ongoing vocabulary with an objective of building towards the SAT and ACT word lists

As committed teacher of both high school art history and literature classes, Socratic discussion has always formed one of the core teaching methods in all my classes. 
Pencil and paper should be brought to class.  Learners should have printed and annotated the Time Magazine article prior to class. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I will send a complete written summation of the discussion following class discussion. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
