Classic Literature Short Stories

$148

with Rachel Grindatto

Calendar Current session started Jan 19, 2021 at 9:55 am, runs for 12 weeks

For Ages 13-16

This course will challenge students to dive deep into the broad question of “what is literature and how can we understand it?” This course is aimed at helping students to develop critical thinking skills and an ability to enjoy literature and create their own. Through an exploration of 8 Classic Short Stories, students will be challenged to critically think through a wide variety of literature and literary components such as exposition, conflict, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, and denouement. Students will be taught through class discussion, several small creative projects, and question/answer writing prompts to build a framework of classic literature and its role in our world today.

Students will be expected to bring a folder, notebook, pen/pencils, thin tipped markers or colored pencils, and a highlighter to EVERY class. Copies of the short stories will be provided by the instructor as will any extra paper materials needed for class time. This course will have minimal required outside reading/writing but will have several small creative projects that will need tro be worked on at home for completion.

This class is for students between the brackets of 8th and 10th grade (ish) due to the complexity of material and the suitableness of several of the short stories.

Current List of Short Stories to be explored (Subject to change at the prerogative of the instructor):

  • “Thank You, Ma’am” by Langston Hughes short story
  • The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell short story *(scene of murders)
  • “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant short story 
  • “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allan Poe * (scene of murder)
  • “The Rules of the Game” by Amy Tan (from The Joy Luck Club)
  • “Lamb to the Slaughter” by Roald Dahl short story *(scene of murder)
  • “The Interlopers” by Saki short story *(scenes of rivalry and death) “The Gift of the Magi” by O. Henry short story

*Please note that several of the short stories may be unsuitable for your student, if there is a story that you are concerned about please reach out to me and we can discuss alternative options for your student. Please take the time to review each short story before enrolling in this class.
