How to Teach the Course
Sunrise 2nd Edition Reading 700 uses five LightUnits and is based on the reader The Road Less Traveled. Stories and poems present students with characters who faced decisions that altered their lives in significant ways.
Using the LightUnits, students build vocabulary; examine literary elements such as setting, theme, and tone; interpret literary techniques such as metaphors, symbols, allusions, irony, and foreshadowing; identify story genres; practice types of writing; and identify faulty reasoning.
Two or three lessons per week cover a full year’s work, or you may choose to cover the course in one semester. Students may do many exercises independently.
