Class Description

Beginning Reader’s Workshop  
Teacher:  Emily Lorelli
Age:  12 - 14
Cost:  $50 tuition, 1 of 4 payments;
$40 copy/supply fee per year
Text:  Students will need their own copy of the selected novels. ISBN numbers will be available after the novels are chosen.
Description: Reading and discussing great literature creates better readers, and better readers are better writers. However, when do we really have the chance to sit down with our peers to discuss great literature? Beginning Reader’s Workshop will provide students the opportunity to read and examine great literature for the middle grades. The class will be organized a lot like a book club with weekly meetings. The class will begin by learning the six signposts as described in Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading through teacher selected short stories and novel excerpts; subsequent books will be chosen by the class from a curated list of age appropriate novels. As we read, students will receive instruction on how to be engaged and responsive readers. Students will develop these skills in weekly reading journals. Grades will be based on participation in class discussion, reading journals, and other short writing assignments. This class is specifically designed to prepare middle school students for high school level language arts classes. Freshmen may take the class for half an English credit.
