Class Information

  HS Lit and Writing

Winter semester:

From Hemingway to Orczy to Dickens, much of literature contains a theme of war. This class will read stories based in times of war by authors from various time periods and locations. We will discuss the impacts of war both on the characters and society as a whole. The students will be required to write papers on what they are reading about and participate in class discussions.

  Instructor Bio:
  , I am a certified ESL teacher with a background in linguistics, literature, history and dance. I have taught at Palaestra for many years and more recently started teaching at Home School Connections. My middle school aged daughter keeps me on my toes and is teaching me to enjoy science, specifically chemistry. I really enjoy teaching writing and literature. My goal is to show students that writing can be if not fun, at least tolerable. When I am not "dance momming” or teaching, I am usually knitting.
