In this eight-week class on Crazy, Creepy Creatures of the Seas, you will learn to identify the central ideas of a text and how those are developed. By the end of this course, you will be able to analyze and support these ideas with evidence from the texts you will be reading on the odd, mysterious creatures found in the world’s oceans. Additionally, we will discuss how these real-life creatures influence myths and legends of monsters, mermaids, and other not-so-real life forms. This class uses a variety of online sources to help you acquire these skills. You will need access to a computer, an e-mail address, and the desire to learn more about what lurks at the bottom of the oceans. Project-based assessments are used to determine your understanding of the course requirements.
Recommended for Grades 7, 8
