Literature

Literature class covers other language topics and skills that are not addressed specifically in tutoring or writing class. Because all of our students have language-based learning weaknesses, participating in three language classes each day helps to further remediate and advance the students in the area of language. Students gain a love of literature and practice skills such as:

  • story mapping
  • character analysis
  • summarizing
  • vocabulary development

 

The Literature Program at Legacy is integrated with the Social Studies curriculum.  Reading selections are chosen to enhance understanding and appreciation of the historical time period being studied.  Students are exposed to a variety of genres including, but not limited to:

  • fiction
  • mystery
  • science fiction
  • fantasy
  • biographies
  • mythologies
  • epics
  • lyric poetry
