2021 MS103 Fall Thursday Evening Class

Thursday 7:30PM-9:00PM (Start time: 09/23/2021 End time: 12/16/2021)- (No Class on 11/25)

3rd Grade: MS103
In this intro-level course, students will read novels from a variety of genres. Specifically, this course will cover adventure, mystery, realistic fiction, comedy, and historical fiction. This varied reading list will not only challenge and engage students, but also present an opportunity to discuss a variety of character types, conflicts, etc. That being said, all course readings are united by a similar theme: identity. This thematic focus will provide structure for students throughout the semester and will allow the instructor to facilitate discussion surrounding text-to-text comparisons. Additionally, this course presents an opportunity for students to practice several writing styles (creative, compare-contrast, summary, book review). During the first half of the course, students will focus specifically on creative writing styles; however, accompanying grammar lessons will provide an academic focus. The second half of the course will focus on academic writing skills.
