Reading and Writing Series


Nick's Novella Club

76th session

Welcome to my novella club! Throughout this series, we will be reading classic novellas (short novels) from some of the most influential and famous authors of all time! The goal of this series is for you to develop the skills to analyze and appreciate works of literature. Since novellas provide tons of room for higher thinking analysis, in each session we will be discussing plot, character, setting, and deeper meanings of the novella that we are reading. To make the series entertaining, there will be many occasions when you will have debates among fellow learners. And, we will even play trivia games relating to our current novella!

AP Lit Mega-Review

8th session

Each week, we'll go over 1-2 components of the AP English Literature exam to help you feel as confident as possible! We'll be going over how to find your own magic formulas for essays, different ways to analyze prose & poetry, as well as personalized strategies for the MCQ section. AP Lit is a difficult class with a (considerably even more) difficult exam–there's no doubt about it. However, I wholeheartedly believe anyone can succeed if they dedicate themselves, even if literature may not be your cup of tea :,)

Profound Poetry


Hello everyone! I am excited to introduce you to our new series where we will explore different types of poetry. We will analyze poems written by famous poets in each class and even write our own poetry. This will be a fun and relaxed way to learn about a diverse range of poetry and express our thoughts on it. The content covered in this series will help you analyze and summarize poems, a valuable skill for school. So, I encourage you to join us and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and grow with us. Thank you for your attention, and I hope to see you soon!
