This course uses beloved children’s literature as the media for mature literary discussion and analytical essay. The course develops advanced analytical reading and composition skills by studying works including The Wind in the Willows, Watership Down, Number the Stars, The Blue Fairy Book, and Treasure Island. This is an upper-level high school course for students who already have a foundation in literature and composition and are looking for a unique opportunity to further develop their skills. It also provides an opportunity to revisit those classics you loved as a kid (or catch up on ones you missed as a kid), but from a mature analytical perspective. If you have a good high school foundation in literature and writing, but you never stopped loving children’s literature, then this is the course for you!
