Literature, Search Trilogy Basic
DescriptionThe purpose of this course is to read and discuss the Search Trilogy: three novels about characters who are searching for their own identities. Along the way, there will be lots of writing and discussions about the characters, the ideas, and the language in each book. There are great words, fun grammar, and twists in the plots of the stories.
There will be a live class once a week on Wednesdays at 3:00. Each week questions will be posted that students can discuss, as well as additional surprises of photographs and a recording in which mrT reads a passage from the week’s reading assignment. Students will have the week to do the reading, to choose the questions he or she likes best, and to write his or her responses.
