Book Club: Teaching the Classics

Do the words “literary analysis” make you quiver with fear and trepidation? Are you vexed with nightmares from a previous literature class and hesitate to begin exploring the elements of stories with your students? Set your worries aside, and join Jennifer Courtney, the Director of Parent Education, and Jaime Kovanda, the Essentials Academic Advisor, to explore a NEW curriculum that teaches an approachable method for using the tools of literary analysis. No need to read War and Peace to accomplish this skill since Teaching the Classics uses children’s short stories to present a step-by-step method for reading, analyzing, and discussing literature with students of all ages.
