Reader's Circle for Teens

This course focuses on literature via class discussions. Books will be chosen by the instructor and students, and weekly reading assignments will be given.
During the bi-monthly meetings, we will analyze, discuss, project, and dissect what has been read in a safe and relaxed environment.
During the week, students will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on the discussion board of the class portal. These discussion boards will help our weekly live discussions be more personalized and provides an opportunity to go deeper with the material.
The main objective of this course is to make connections with the characters, the social issues and each other, while bringing literature to life!
In this course your child will:
-Participate in class discussions on literature
-Complete weekly reading assignments
-Analyze texts

About Emily: The arts are an integral part of my life. In my early college years, I majored in music education and liberal arts with a focus on clarinet performance. After college, I met and married the love of my life and we’ve been happily married for 18 years. We’ve lived in Utah, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Yaounde, Cameroon; Helsinki, Finland; Amman, Jordan; Colombo, Sri Lanka; and we currently reside in La Paz, Bolivia. We have four children whom I’ve homeschooled for the past 10 years as we’ve trotted about the globe. During those homeschooling years I’ve taught music lessons and Spanish, headed co-ops, lead story times and literature groups, and facilitated learning of all kinds. Teaching, learning, and the arts are my passion. I am currently finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Marriage & Family science with an emphasis in Human Services and Family Counseling, with plans to begin my Master’s studies in clinical and arts therapy.
