Chapter Chasers: Novel Study & Analysis
Fridays
5:00-6:30
ECP Centre
Overview
Curling up with a good book can be pure enjoyment in itself, but fully understanding and interpreting a story means more than just racing to the finish. In this workshop, students will do close readings of one or more selected texts and discuss key elements together, with particular focus on analysing characters, relating to themes, and identifying writing techniques used by the authors. Students will do both creative and essay writing, as well as learn new vocabulary and practise using it!
Learning objectives

  • Develop close reading skills, including making inferences and finding supporting evidence from the text
  • Do introductory analysis of characters and themes and learn how to write structured responses to literature
