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.
