Why People Love Books
Books are awesome. They can be so entertaining and interesting, and some people just haven't learned that yet. In this class, we're going to have a look at some short texts and figure out for ourselves why people are obsessed with books and reading.
We'll study some short texts and pick them apart to learn heaps about them. In doing that we'll have lots and lots of conversations about what's in the stories as well as what they make us think about. Our tangents will take us to all sorts of weird and wonderful places and we will see just how much you can unpack a book.
This class will involve lots of discussions and sharing thoughts and opinions.
Come along if you love reading, would like to help other people love reading, or if you'd like to learn how to love it yourself!
For those who are joining the class, Google Classroom code is fuf74t2. There will also be a no devices rule for this class: what that means is that we'll put phones and laptops on a table at the front of the class, and they won't be touched until the session is finished. If you don't think this is something you can manage, please discuss other options with your HBLA.
