Special Needs: Level 8 Literature

Please see the overview of our special needs classes.

Description: This literature course will guide your students through some of the most beloved children’s literature, using the Simply Classical Level 8 Literature selections: Homer Price, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Trumpet of the Swan. As your student progresses through this course, your student will be trained to become an active reader. The course, in conjunction with the guides, will focus on the storyline of each book, plus vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, and composition skills. Students will be prepared for each chapter, and the comprehension questions will teach your student to think about what they have read and to learn to identify the important content of each story. These comprehension questions will also teach your student the advanced skill of composing a clear, concise answer to a question. Daily time spent on reading will vary by student. The grade is based on participation, online quizzes that test the student’s knowledge of the reading, and one enrichment activity per book. This is submitted online to the instructor and is manually graded. Students will be actively involved in class and parents are expected to sit with students to help them through the class.
