Time- 8:30 - 10:30
Class Fee: $50
Mentors- Mellissa Melville and Amanda Walker
Spring Semester 2023
Are you ready to step through the wardrobe door? Be crowned Kings and Queens of Narnia as we discover how we can apply the books we read to our own lives, learn about the Hero’s Journey, and find the writer within ourselves.
Throughout this class we will read the entire Chronicles of Narnia series, give presentations, practice writing our thoughts, gain a foundation in grammar, and place our feet on the path to becoming heroes. There will be a little bit of homework each week, and we will be reading 4 - 5 chapters of a book per week.
We will read roughly one book per month. Students should bring the book we are reading to class with them each week so that we can discuss the chapters for that week. Ideally each student will have their own copy of the book that they can take notes in, but a shared copy is acceptable and notes can be taken in a notebook or on sticky notes, instead.

The Silver Chair (First four chapters are due the first week of class!)
