We will embark on a Harry Potter themed journey.  Along the way we will creatively employ magical thinking to unlock the joys of the six English Language Arts: listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing, and visually representing.  We will utilize each one in this class through individual and collaborative projects.


Each student will fill a Common Place Book filled with Words of Wisdom and favorite quotes from the book series and weekly journal writing.  Along our journey we will build our vocabulary, study figurative language, look for some of life’s universal themes: Fortune, Friendship, Happiness, Identity, Justice, Love, Desire, Power, Suffering and Freewill… and have a whole lot of fun!


Book List:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Books will be distributed in class.


I utilize Google Classroom for all assignments, communications, online discussions, and updates so students will need their own gmail.  This makes it easy to refer to for homeschool teacher meetings, assignment details and due dates, and grades.
