All studies will be founded in the governing principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We will study materials from the primary genre of the novel, biography, autobiography, short story, poetry, essay, letter, sermon, speech, and scripture as literature.
A Master Project will include reading a biography on a hero who moves forward the cause of Christ. This involves creating an extensive Notebook and oral presentation.
Students will explore key thematic questions such as: What effect does reading good literature have on the development of character?
What are some good examples of elevated composition, style, vocabulary, presentation, Etc.? How have you been striving to model them in your own writing? Scholars will learn through lectures, discussions, presentations, reports, oral and written exams, quizzes, 4R sheets, essays, speakers and celebrations.
They will also have opportunities to create and display works of art. Scholars will demonstrate their understanding through creating literature of their own.
