Required Texts:

Summary: This course aims to help students to grow in their understanding of the components and organizational structures of short stories, novels, and poems, building on the foundational skills learned in Grade 7. The aim is for them to 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 and expository texts, even complex ones, with clear sentences and paragraphs, having access to a variety of writing conventions to vary their sentence lengths and types, as well as their voice and tone.

Prerequisites: 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 the speech and the other grammatical skills covered in levels 1 & 2 (see syllabi) before enrolling in this class.
