Ideal as an introductory experience to the virtual classroom, this class focuses on literature in combination with a variety of written assignments and projects. Students learn to discuss the material and explore various literary elements. Designed to encourage children to enjoy and evaluate literature, the course will also provide opportunities for creative expression. All assignments will be evaluated for writing and grammar skills, as well as content.

Weekly homework reinforces the concepts taught in class and the teacher is available during live office hours and by email to assist students. Assignments are graded and students receive a mid-term report as well as a year-end course completion form.
