Reading for the Logic Stage I
Full-year course. Reading for the Logic Stage I 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 I is the first course in the three-level sequence. In RFLS I, students will be introduced to the practice of reading and responding to texts individually and in conversation with others, in both written and discussion formats. While this course provides an academic context and instructor guidance in the discussion and comprehension of the course texts, the primary goal of RFLS I is to encourage students to develop a love of reading and to share their ideas about what they are reading with others.
