In literature, characters become our friends.  We can sympathize or celebrate with them.  We feel their joys, sorrows and pain.  In this class, Perspectives, your child will embrace the world of Short Stories.   We will delve deep into these pieces of literature analyzing, discussing and writing about the details pertaining to these stories.   There will be one technological project; otherwise, the writing will range from 3 – 5 paragraphs including Narrative Summaries, Critique Writing and Essays.  Please refer to the syllabus for the list of short stories.

This semester we will be focusing on the following short stories:

“Seventh Grade” by Gary Soto

“Scholarship Jacket” by Marta Salinas

“The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant

“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson

“The Gift of the Magi” by O.Henry

NOTE:

Registration deadline is September 10, 2020.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
