Summary: This course aims to help students build a foundational understanding of the components and organizational structures of short stories, novels, and poems and develop synthetic thinking skills from a foundation of the Orthodox Christian faith, with the end result of being able to recognize patterns and make connections across a broad spectrum of literature. It also aims to help students pay careful attention to short texts, learning practical lessons on spelling, grammar, and punctuation from these. Finally, it aims to teach students to retell narrative stories, even complex ones, with clear sentences and paragraphs and to write expository paragraphs as well.
Prerequisite: Ability to type (for taking dictation on studied passages during class). It is recommended that students have been previously introduced to the 8 parts of speech.
