This course uses Dr. Seuss’s stories to help students learn about figurative language or words that create meaning and depth in literature. It might be easy to assume that Green Eggs and Ham and The Lorax are simple kid stories, but there’s more to them! In fact, Dr. Seuss was a poet, and his wacky tales are the perfect way to help kids of any age develop thinking and writing skills. Each week we will use a different Seuss story to learn about things like symbolism, metaphor, allegory, rhyme, rhythm, and much, much more. In the end, students will be able to write an essay that explores the meaning of these stories and do a creative project that displays their learning.
Recommended for Grades 6, 7
