With the new semester and a new student, there is fresh energy in our Language Arts class. We are making fantastic progress in the Wordly Wise textbook which has proven to be challenging but the girls consistently demonstrate great grasp of the meaning of the difficult vocabulary as well as their capacity to use it appropriately. We have begun to read Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, first familiarizing ourselves with the turbulent life of the author. In the upcoming weeks, we will not only analyze the novella in depth, but also compare it to its various film adaptations and write essays on the main themes of the book (heroism, unity of nature and man, pride) . It is promising to be a fruitful, productive and enjoyable semester.
