Perspectives in Literature

Perspectives in Literature is a comprehension-based program that introduces grade 6 students to new and relevant selections from a variety of authors, genres, and backgrounds. Teachers will lead students through literary works that will broaden their understanding of the world. Students will learn how to use reading strategies so they can get the most out of their reading. As they read, analyze, and evaluate literary works, students will learn to apply the same principles to their own communication and respond what they read from a biblical worldview.
