AP* Online Classes


The literature assignments were my favorite part of the class. Mr. Leven chose works from authors such as Gabriel García Márquez, Ana Maria Matute, and Jorge Luis Borges. The stories not only gave me a better understanding of Spanish literature, but also provided a rich source of advanced vocabulary.

Shakespeare: As You Like It

In this course we will perform a close reading of Shakespeare's As You Like It and contextualize the play within Shakespeare’s world and modern receptions of it. This course is ideal for students with prior experience in high school level English who enjoy close reading and hands on approaches to literature. It is designed to give an introduction to reading and performing Shakespeare, and as such no prior experience with him is necessary. 

Course objectives:

Activities will include daily readings, memorization of a brief passage of the student’s choice, in-class dramatization via video chat, asynchronous discussion questions, film viewings, and ‘Shakespeare’s world’ in character interactions.

This course runs for three weeks from July 27th to August 14th. Most of the course will be asynchronous with some synchronous meetings for in-class events at times to be determined. No application is required to take this course and course tuition is $120.
