Product Description

Have you ever read a work of great literature and wondered how and why the author created the work they did? This book will introduce you to "literary reading", the way to learn about the contexts of stories, including the author, text elements, and other elements of the assigned works of great literature, allowing for writing practice while growing familiar with some of the greatest writers of all time. This book establishes the scope & sequence, assigns the readings, suggests an assignment schedule, provides organization tips, and a rubric for objectively evaluating completed assignments, and provides resources for research; students must find copies of the books to read. Learn to read with discernment, become a self-motivated learner, strengthen writing skills, and prepare for college classes! Each of the nine included units are designed to be completed in four intense weeks. Grades 8-12. 146 pages, spiralbound softcover.
