Get ready for summer reading by choosing titles worthy of your time and intellect! Students will learn the definition, purpose, and qualities of great literature. We will discuss genre, the elements of story structure and writing style. We will compare our favorite works of fiction and build a reading list for the summer.
As a published author of fiction and nonfiction for both children and adults, an artist and a performer, I believe in the cultural power and intellectual benefits of great literature, art and music. My homeschooling methodology is humanities based with an emphasis on the written word.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

General reasons for controversy will be discussed and included in our analysis of what makes a good book good.
