HSHSP Ep 89: A NOVEL Approach with Highschool Literature!

This week on HSHSP Ep 89: A NOVEL Approach with Highschool Literature!

HSHSP Ep 89: A NOVEL Approach with Highschool Literature!

HSHSP Ep 89: A NOVEL Approach with Highschool Literature!

Moldy, ancient novels: that’s what highschool Literature is, right?

Boring, meaningless lessons based on the old novel is highschool Literature, right?

Wrong on both counts!

Why read just because they are required to? Why not look at *novel* ideas for types of Literature? Teens can:

  • Read for connection (to the author, to life, to culture, etc)
  • Read to understand the author’s why?
  • Read to find their own why?

AND Literature is more than dusty novels. Lots of things can count as Literature!

Sabrina, Vicki and Kym have some NOVEL ideas for some lively, meaningful and fun ideas for homeschool highschool Literature. They share the thought provoking questions:

 

What can count as literature? Can it be something other than old novels? Here are some types of Literature that they have covered with their homeschool highschoolers:

  • Poetry (reading, interacting with it, memorizing it, writing it)
  • Short stories
  • Biographies
  • Autobiographies
  • Plays (try some Readers Theatre)
  • Movies

Listen and find out the answer to the BURNING question: Why did Shakespeare write in iambic pentameter.

In the meantime, check out these useful links for new ways to look at highschool Literature.
