For high school students, Book Wormz concentrates on diving deeper into critical analysis. Students should already know how to recognize plot, theme, characters, setting and conflict, so the focus will shift towards a more introspective study of the book. Students will also establish writing skills to help them in university. 

In class they will focus on:

  • Plot analysis
  • Character analysis
  • Essay writing
  • SAT reading list (Students with excellent reading and comprehension skills find the verbal sections of the SAT much easier to attack. Classic literature offers you a chance to practice reading typical SAT passages and to expand your SAT vocabulary.)
