Reading for the Logic Stage II

Full-year course. Reading for the Logic Stage II is designed to engage middle grade 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.

Please note: Students may take Reading for the Logic Stage II without having completed Reading for the Logic Stage.
