  1. Movies as Literature
    Taught by Mary Bergman This class is designed to help students begin to develop an understanding of the elements of storytelling. In this fun introduction to literary analysis, the students will explore the techniques storytellers used to convey messages and will practice identifying and evaluating these messages. At the heart of all literary analysis are the questions – What do I see in a text? Why and how does the author do this? What is his purpose? These are the questions we will employ as we evaluate the suspenseful movie Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock. Among other things, we will study plot and character development, tone and mood, theme, setting, irony and figures of speech. Homework commitment: approximately 1 hour per week.
  2. MS Language Exploratory
    Taught by Lucy Gregory, Julianna Moore, and Jeanette Gravitz Each week for three weeks students will be introduced to a different language. One week of Spanish, one week of German and one week of American Sign Language. The fourth and final week will be a cultural gathering where students will be invited to bring a dish to share from their favorite country. “Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.” Rita Mae Brown
