Prerequisite: None

This class uses classic short stories to present techniques, vocabulary, and practice to develop literary perception. We will further apply these learned elements by reading, discussing, and writing about some novels, non-fiction, and poetry. Enrolled students will receive a list of additional books to be purchased or obtained from the library,  HSB Resource Center, etc. This course will be beneficial for the seriously committed student. In addition to the useful literary knowledge acquired, the abilities developed in this class (thinking in-depth, reading with discernment, writing with skill), should have significant transfer value to other fields of study in college and life.
