Language Arts: Grades 6 7 8: Summer Course
In this course, students study a range of classic and contemporary texts, as they develop an appreciation for great works of literature. They learn the language of literary analysis and gain a strong understanding of literary and sound terms and learn to apply these concepts to the analysis of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Elements of narration: point of view, characterization, plot, narrative structure, theme, and setting are explored in application to literary works. Students will study the conventions of literary analysis in order to develop the skills necessary for academic criticism and argument.
Research writing strategies are taught, along with source documentation requirements. Students study both primary and secondary sources of information and proper source integration. The generation of a sound academic argument will ultimately be realized in essay composition and in research writing.
