Day & Time: Thursday 10:15-11:25
Mentor: Angie Gardner aka Frizzle
Moral Reasoning through Literature is a class which relies on critical thinking by looking at the process of making a decision whose outcome has moral consequences. We will read, annotate, write and discuss classic literary works and characters as well as current events and essays. Most journal prompts are from short answer college entrance questions.
Read, Write, Discuss. The core of critical thinking and our classroom. I expect discussion, debate and respectful exchange of ideas as we explore moral reasoning through literature. There are four essays assignments throughout the class; two the first semester, two the second semester..
Students are expected to come to class prepared with books and/or the written material we are studying, writing utensils (pen or pencil), paper, and ready to work hard while having fun.

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