6-8 Writing/Literature - Spring
Text / Materials Required
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (needed the first week of class)
Summer of the Monkeys by Wilson Rawls (needed later in the semester)
We will continue the study of literature and the basic elements of the writing process. There will be journaling and creative writing as well. Class time will consist of discussion and activities relating to the weekly reading as well as writing instruction and application. We will read two classics—going deeper as we analyze them from a literary standpoint.
*This class may be taken for three years as different books are read each year.
