In literature, characters become our friends.  We can sympathize or celebrate with them.  We feel their joys, sorrows, and pain.  

Learn to read and analyze short stories like a pro! 

In this weekly class learners will gain high level literary analysis skills and join a group of like-minded learners that love English. And why goat…. Because these are some of the greatest short stories of all times!

Participation is an absolute to make the most of this class.   Participation happens in two ways: (1) through students speaking out loud via their microphones OR (2) through typing in the chat log.  Students may opt to what method of participation they prefer.  Students should “pre-read” the short stories that we will be discussing during that lesson.   While reading, they should put themselves in their character’s situation and think what life would be like walking in their shoes.   

Students can expect between 2 – 3 hours of work weekly, which can include a combination of informal journaling, analysis, essay writing, quizzes, and of course, reading short stories.

Stories that we will read, discuss, and analyze are…

“The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell

“The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs

“The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury

“The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allen Poe

“Gimpel the Fool” by Isaac Bashevis Singer

This class is worth .5 English credit.

NOTE: This class must reach the m minimum of five students by August 20, 2023 to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
