Motivated students with good essay writing skills, excellent time management, and the desire for a more personalized approach are a good fit for Guided Independent Study. The student and Mrs. Craven will collaborate on a reading list of eight texts centered around the student’s interests. Monthly one-on-one meetings will include discussion of key themes and elements in each literary selection as well as agreement on essay/project topics and deadlines. Between meetings, the student will be responsible for reading assigned texts, preparing for discussion, and completing essays/projects; Mrs. Craven will be available to answer questions via email. There will be four process essays (multiple drafts), two timed essays, and two projects to complete throughout the year.
Day/Time Flexible but requires one-hour monthly meetings scheduled from August to May.
