Spring Class Choices

See below the classes offered for middle and high school students for ACCHE's spring semester. Please share the list with your middle/high schoolers. They will need to choose one class for each period. Sign-up will be available at co-op on Tuesday, Dec. 21.

Period ½ - 10:15 - 11:10
Creative Writing (Jennie Spoor)
This class will cover creative (fictional) writing rather than expository writing--shorts stories, poetry, maybe even novel rather than essays. We will spend a lot of time learning to show rather than tell, learning how to make our work clear for the reader in various situations, and use various literary devices CREATIVELY. We will have lots of fun writing and hearing each others' work and talking about improving. Students will need a spiral notebook or ring binder with blank paper and the ability to store loose papers.
Literature (Glenna Sadler)
This class will be reading The Chronicles of Narnia, all 7 books, in chronological order so the events in the books will make more sense. The books will be read in the 2-week periods between classes with discussion each time we meet. Written assignments will frequently accompany the reading assignments.

Spanish (Becky Corder)
Beginner Spanish will be covering pronunciation, pronouns, basic vocabulary, and common phrases.
Period ¾ - 11:15 - 12:10
Drama (Tammy Payne)
In Drama, we will be learning some acting techniques. We will also be putting on a play for the co-op families at the end of the semester.

Puppetry (Patricia Stilwell)
In this class, you will learn basic puppet manipulation: how to hold a puppet, move its mouth and body correctly. You will also learn how to use arm rods on a puppet and how to work a human arm puppet. We will be singing songs and maybe work on a little play to perform if time allows. Hope to have a lot of fun!!

Dangerous Class (Angela Harbour)
This class will be based on the Dangerous Book for Boys and some other resources to teach skills that will be fun and useful.
Period 5 - 12:15 - 12:40

Period 6 - 12:45 - 1:20
Health (Beth Miller)
This class will cover some basic body systems and first aid basics. It may also touch on smoking and drug use basic info, and healthy life choices.

WV Studies (Lynda Vance)
Information presented will cover the culture and history of West Virginia

Public Speaking (Mary Black)
This class will cover the basic speech types, informative, layout, persuasive, impromptu, and demonstration. Students will memorize some speeches and write some of their own speeches. They will give oral presentations to their classmates.
