Day & Time: Thursday 12:30-1:40
Mentor: Jen Fletcher
Students will read an excerpt from well-known children’s literature each week, then write an expository paragraph—such as narrative, descriptive, comparison, etc. This develops students’ reading comprehension skills in several ways, including (but not limited to): discerning the important points of a story vs. details, recognizing chronological order, representing an author’s work accurately, and eliminating any excess words (no padding/no fluff).
In this class, students will be :
- reading a wide variety of excellent children’s literature
- listening to and speaking written language
- writing expository paragraphs
- developing sophisticated written syntax and advanced comprehension through sentence combining clauses and phrases
Required materials: TBD
All classes are full-year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
