Course Description: The goal of this class is to help students enjoy reading great books! Through discussion and activity, I hope to spark curiosity, delight and to help students develop deep relationships with the text. Students will see how great readers think and learn how to read between the lines. They will need to keep up with the reading schedule in order to be ready to participate in the class discussion and activities. I will be expecting students to read a chapter or two a day four days a week so the books will take 2-3 weeks to complete depending on the length. Books may also be read to them.
