The Upper Unit students have been diving deep into their reading and searching for treasure in their Humanities Language Arts work. Treasure, in this instance, is taking the form of quotes that have particular value, beauty, or personal significance.

As part of this work, the students completed a drawing activity that helped to define and differentiate between “literature” and “escape fiction.” Students were then asked to write and respond to two “treasured” quotes in their Literature Journals, with one quote being chosen from the samples in class, and one from the book that they are reading.  They will also be asked to classify their current book as either “literature” or “escape fiction” based on the distinctions they have learned so far.
