Summary: Students are introduced to various stories: ancient and modern, comedies and tragedies, fiction and nonfiction. Students will develop knowledge of the basic components of a story and an appreciation for technique that authors use to make their work both engaging and beautiful. Class discussion will take place from a foundation of Orthodox Christian values, as we explore how the characters reflect, or fail to reflect, the wisdom which is revealed to us through the Orthodox Christian faith. Writing assignments can be adapted for the needs of each student. They will include summaries, a personal narrative, a fictional story, and a research paper. Parts of speech, spelling, grammar, punctuation, creative and technical writing will be activities implemented throughout the course.
