Students grades 8-12 are introduced to English literary analysis by exploring J.R.R. Tolkien’s magical Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings classic books, and will compare them with the epic movies by Peter Jackson.

Explore the splendid and harrowing story of Frodo Baggins, a humble hobbit, on his quest to save Middle Earth from the dark forces of Sauron.  Brace yourselves as Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Goblins, Hobbits, WIzards and Men lay it all on the line in this epic tale of good versus evil.  Be inspired by the tale of friendship, humility, sacrifice, and hope in the face of the impossible.

Weekly classroom quests will have students searching for the use of illuminating vocabulary,  figurative language, and pondering the big questions about character, moral intent, symbolism and literary interpretation.  We will read chapters from the books, and match them with segments of the movies providing lively comparisons, analysis, debate, and discussion.

Opportunities for innovative challenges, activities, creative writing, and hands-on projects will round out this extraordinary classroom adventure.

NOTE TO PARENTS
The minimum grade recommendation for this class has been set partially due to The Lord of the Rings movie series being rated PG-13.  It depicts fantasy violence through gruesome battle scenes of good versus evil, and some scary imagery of Sauron’s evil army (orcs, goblins, etc..).  If you would like to read more about the content of this film series, we recommend searching CommonSenseMedia.org for their age-based reviews.  Parent permission slips for viewing will be required of all students taking this class.

REGISTRATION:  Beginning May 1, 2020, simply complete the form and payment on the Registration page of WeSparkLearning.com Charter School students should request a P.O./Enrichment Certificate to be issued as soon as school begin processing for this period, in order to secure enrollment.

September16, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

TARGET: Grades 1-5.

COURSE DURATION: 1 year (two, 14 week semesters – classes begin September 16, 2020)

COST PER SEMESTER  (All materials provided):

  • $250 for private pay homeschool families.
  • $275 for iLead, Epic, Aveson, Compass, Inspire, Heartland, Blue Ridge Academy, Granite Mountain, Sage Oak, Sky Mountain, Summit, Golden Valley, and Excel Academy Charter students. If you don’t see your school listed, please contact us at WeSparkLearning@yahoo.com so we can apply to become a vendor for you.

 Students become “neighbors” in a crazy Wild West Town they help create, where they will experience many events through the year including western themed activities, natural disasters, community events, unbelievable mishaps and some silly celebrations!  As each town event effects the “homesteaders”, it will serve as the journal prompt for a creative writing assignment for the week.

“I hopped on my horse to round up some cattle thieves and …”

“I’ve never been to a barn raising before, so today was…”

“The unusual ingredients in my cauldron of stew were…”

Class cowboys and cowgirls will start by deciding what to name their town and establishing their own home and property. Each student will choose a job that will produce weekly earnings. They can use their income to save and upgrade their home, or enhance their property with decorative and fun items from the marketplace.  Neighbors will talk about and compare stories about the wild western events of the week.  Some drawing, crafts, prize games, and other creative expressions will also be incorporated throughout the year.

While the class will have some mini lessons on writing techniques, literary devices, figurative language, and poetry, our focus is not on the formal fundamentals of writing.  The main goal of this class is to motivate kids to put pen to paper to write with enthusiasm and express their ideas in written form.    Journal writing is done during class time, and journal expectations can be varied to adapt to different learning levels and abilities.

REGISTRATION: Beginning May 1, 2020, simply complete the form and payment on the Registration page of WeSparkLearning.com .  Charter School students must request a P.O./Enrichment Certificate to be issued as soon as possible, in order to secure enrollment.

WHY STEM?

As parents and educators, why should we care about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (S.T.E.M.)?   Science explores the physical world around us.  Math explores the world through numbers and equations.  Engineering uses math and science to solve real-world problems.  Technology is the use of engineering to generate a good or service for the purpose of serving others.  By combining S.T.E.M. education with the proper worldview, we are preparing our youth to develop products and services that can change the world.
