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.

B has enjoyed the creative assignments that accompany the short stories. Ms. Eva is a fantastic teacher and my son appreciates and looks forward to her meaningful assessments of his work. The group setting brings “perspectives” to the literature that he wouldn’t get just from reading the stories on his own or with me. This has been an enjoyable class.

M is really enjoying Perspectives this semester. I am happy that she is reading stories she normally wouldn’t choose to read. The activities that you do for each story keeps the class fun and interesting! I think it is a great combination of reading comprehension and writing done in a way that the students don’t realize that is what you are doing. Thanks for approaching this class, and these topics, so creatively 🙂
