This class is designed to foster a deep appreciation for literature and its functions in our personal lives and society. Analytical, historic and personal approaches are taken to fully understand the themes, lessons and other insights within a particular book. Activities and exercises are incorporated that not only improve students comprehension, but also empower them to analyze and effectively critique a work of literature. The skills gained through literature appreciation are transferable to many other academic subjects since “inquiry” is at the core of this class. Further, because the class is dynamic and student driven it allows for full participation and inclusion of all students regardless of their current academic level. The end result is a more thoughtful young person who is better able to articulate opinions based on textual references and has the confidence to be heard.
