UPDATE- High School English-Lit
Class Information for 2016-2017
What: High School World Lit and Comp
When: Thursday Morning--possibly 10:15-12:30
Where: Blankinship or Cotuna Home
Note: We plan to have class in a morning slot, offer lunch fellowship afterwards, and then by 1:00, those that are taking Steve Noble's Christian Ethics class can carpool over to Colonial.
For Composition, we will move from our current focus on Literature Analysis essays to more Argumentative and Research Writing. In the past, I have seen great success as the students worked through IEW's Writing Research Papers and am considering using it again. It is similar to The Elegant Essay in the way that it breaks the process down into smaller manageable steps. As the new SAT asks students to deconstruct and evaluate a piece of writing, we will work to write our own Persuasive Essays, as well as take apart other's work to evaluate their argument.
