In literature, characters become our friends.  We can sympathize or celebrate with them.  We feel their joys, sorrows and pain.  In this class, Perspectives, your child will embrace the world of Short Stories.   We will delve deep into these pieces of literature analyzing, discussing and writing about the details pertaining to these stories. The writing will consist of three 5-paragraph Expository Essays and two Creative Writing assignments. Please refer to the syllabus for the list of short stories.

This semester we will be focusing on the following short stories:

  • “The Ransom of Red Chief” by O.Henry
  • “The Rules of the Game” by Amy Tan
  • “Mother and Daughter” by Gary Soto
  • “The Mustache” by Robert Cormier
  • “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury

NOTE: Registration deadline is December 15, 2021.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.

Excellent class with clear and detailed guidance

I believe my rising 7th grader has greatly benefited from taking the summer Powerful Paragraphs class from Eva. There were precise and detailed instructions on brainstorming, constructing varied and expressive sentences, and usage of transitional phrases, all in the context of the different writing structures they studied each week. The weekly reviews of past lessons and the incremental addition of new stylistic techniques were great reinforcement for the concepts being thoughts. It was also useful to have the numerous sample writings provided for reference with each lesson. Through out the class, they kids had a growing list of “banned” words to encourage them to choose more expressive and nuanced alternatives (started with one or two and grew to maybe ~15). Overall, a great class for my child who is still in the early stages of honing his essay writing skills.

Unsung Heroes

My daughter loved learning about “unsung heroes” of the Civil Rights Movement: individuals who deserve recognition, but receive little in the history books. Ms. Eva ties in historical background information extremely well to the book to help understand the bigger picture to further appreciate Claudette Colvin’s courage.

My 12 year old son took this class this summer in preparation for more complicated classes in middle school and high school. I had assumed time management, use of highlighters, reading texts for comprehension, how to study for a midterm. Sure, all that was introduced, but more significantly, techniques for planning meant my son started to think and dream about his own future! What he would like to do over the next 2 years – 5 years -longer. Thanks Eva!
