American Literature: The purpose of American Literature is to learn the concepts and ideas embodied in literature that shaped America and made her a distinct nation.  Students will discuss such themes as liberty, justice, independence, happiness, sacrifice, and other concepts fundamental to the American idiom.  Students will be asked to read several great works by American authors and discuss them both in class and in essay form.

In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of solid journalistic writing, including specific techniques that will improve writing for not only publication, but for academia and the future workplace as well.  Types and techniques include editing, interviewing, in-depth reporting, sports writing, editorial writing and journalism ethics.  Writers and reporters from local media outlets may also give presentations.  Students will hone their skills through writing exercises and assignments and will create a portfolio of their best writing.  Student writing will be used to create the Providence Academy Word (PAW), the school’s online newspaper. Students will also be challenged to seek publication of one or more of their class assignments in a variety of local publications or media outlets.

COURSE OVERVIEW:

 

 

W

elcome to 8th Grade English and Literature class!  I am delighted to have you as a student!  And I invite you to prepare your imaginations for a journey where we will encounter heroes, villains, the redeemed, and the fallen.  Over the course of the year, you will meet classic characters (Kino, Napoleon the Pig, Scrooge, Scout, Atticus Finch, Romeo, Juliet and many more), and you will grow in your understanding of the great conversation literature presents – the conversation about what it is to be human.  You can join the great conversation and, in addition, cultivate new ideas and skills that will develop you into a stronger reader, writer, speaker, and thinker.

Are you ready for the journey?

 

Welcome to 6th Grade English and Literature class!  Prepare your imagination for a journey you will never forget. You are about to encounter primeval monsters, sail the high seas, and meet famed heroes. Over the course of the year, you will explore myths, legends and fairytales from ancient Greece, the high middle ages of Scandinavia, and the early 19th and 20th centuries of Britain and Russia.   You will also develop new ideas and skills that will help you become a better reader, writer, speaker, and thinker.

 Are you ready for the journey?

The 2D Art Projects class was created to offer middle school students the opportunity for more in-depth explorations in art beyond what is covered in the CKC classes.  Each quarter consists of three or four main projects focusing primarily on a range of drawing, painting and mixed-media techniques.  Additional, smaller assignments will lead up to or compliment the major projects throughout the semester along with the viewing and discussion of images from art history. 

History is a record of the past. In this class we will ask: what drives human behavior? How have humans adapted and improved their societies and way of life? What causes change over time?
