Reading for the Logic Stage II
Full-year course. Reading for the Logic Stage II is designed to engage logic-stage students in reading and literary discussion. Students will come together with their instructor once a week to talk about that week’s reading. The instructor will provide prompts for class discussion; these questions will guide that week’s discussion. Students will also be given the opportunity to serve as discussion facilitators throughout the semester.
Reading for the Logic Stage courses are meant to inspire a love of reading, introduce students to a range of texts, and touch on the foundations of literary analysis. Reading for the Logic Stage II is the second course in the three-level sequence. In RFLS II, students will continue to practice reading and responding to texts individually and in conversation with others, in both written and discussion formats. Students will be introduced to major literary terms and devices, and will identify them in the course texts. While work in the level two course will incorporate a bit more literary complexity than in the level one, the goal of fostering a habit of reading for pleasure is still the core value of the class.
