Advanced Critical Reading & Writing
The purpose of this reading course is to enrich student reading and critical-thinking skills. Students will go beyond just basic reading comprehension and engage in analysis of a complex text and its style, messaging, and implications. In other words, this class is designed for students who not only can analyze plot and characters but also identify explicit and implicit themes and real-world meanings that extend beyond a text. Students will become familiar with some of the terms and concepts normally found in Advanced Placement (AP) Exams or International Baccalaureate (IB) programs.
