INTRO TO LITERATURE: FICTION

 

Reading and writing go hand in hand. This course will help your child develop better understanding of what he is reading by utilizing written responses. Students will study the elements of story, and in turn, learn to summarize the main details, get to know the characters, and find the moral of the story. Students will make connections, ask questions, and formulate predictions for a story.
