Additional materials for class activities will be provided. Students will be issued a folder, as well as weekly handouts. Students are required to complete assigned readings (approx. 2-3 chapters per week). Students with reading constraints may use an audio book. Literature extension activities will vary each week. (Students missing a class may or may not be able to make up the activity/craft as these are done as a group.)
Readings listed are to be read PRIOR to class. Students will engage in class discussion. Weekly class activities will include vocabulary, literary terms, and extension activities. Students will engage in hands on activities throughout the course. These activities will incorporate a multisensory approach to the study of literature. Activities will include map study, character analysis, poetry, history, and science as it relates to the book’s central theme and characters.
