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!

Stories that we will read this semester are…

“The Son from America” by Isaac Bashevis Singer’

“The Lady, or The Tiger?” by Frank Stockton

“The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst

“There Will Come Soft Rains” by Ray Bradbury

“A Perfect Day for Bananafish” by J. D. Salinger

Participation is an absolute to make the most of this class.   Participation happens in two ways: (1) through students speaking out loud via the Microphone OR (2) through typing in the chat log.  Students may opt to what method of participation they prefer.  

Students should expect about 2 – 3 hours of homework, which can include informal journaling, analysis, essay writing, and of course, reading.

This class is worth .5 (1/2) high school credit in English.

To receive a FULL YEAR of credit, please take FALL GOATS as well as WINTER GOATS.

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by December 15, 2023, to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
