This literature class offers students the benefits of homeschooling alongwith the friendship of other homeschoolers in a nurturing environment.
A typical class day engages students through interactive discussion, visual media, and traditional teaching methods which appeal to visual and verbal learners as well as those students that need specific learning accommodations. Class time is engaging and though we work hard, we have fun! Students will analyze, interpret, and evaluate complex narratives. This course is designed to be reading intensive, and 3-4 analytical essays are required per semester.
This Literature course offers grammatical skill work at the beginning of class that prepares students for the English section of the ACT. Good reading skills (a MUST for ACT Reading) are addressed in all courses.
Extra tutoring is FREE and available in 15 minute segments on off periods as well as lunch. Email, text, and phone tutoring are also included with the course fees. More extensive one-on-one tutoring is available on Fridays hourly at a discount for currently enrolled students.
