Is Clue your favorite board game? Do you wish that you could participate in an Escape Room adventure? Are you always searching for a mystery that might need solving? This is the class for you! Not only will we read engaging books, some of which will lead you to other great books in a series, but we will solve a few mysteries of our own as we learn about and employ critical thinking and logic skills. Along with standard language arts activities that will develop your writing and research skills, we will also learn about the background within the story (did you know that the Pinkerton Detective Agency was real, and not just made up for a book that we are going to read?) or other related information. Here is your opportunity to participate with others equally interested in mysteries while taking a great literature-based class.
*Due to often-controversial content found in Young Adult literature, we will be reading many books from Juvenile Literature selections. Despite the easier reading level of books (primarily 5th -8th grade), the workload will be of an upper middle school/lower high school level.
This class will include on-line assessments, writing assignments and projects. Because of the interactive nature of this class, microphone capabilities are required and a webcam is strongly recommended.
