Course Description

In this two week course, students will tackle two important skills that will help ensure success in school. During week one, students will read a series of short stories and examine elements of literature including theme, conflict, character development and setting, including others. In week two, students will then write about these stories, focussing on important writing skills such as the development of the paragraph, responding to quotations, and using textual evidence to support one’s argument, to name a few.
