The Writings of C.S. Lewis Course Description 

 Note: This class has been canceled for 2017. 

What does it cover?

This spring-semester elective course on the writings of C.S. Lewis delves into the work of one of the most beloved and influential Christian writers of the 20th century. A man of many talents, Lewis's interests ranged from popular apologetics to literary criticism, fiction, and more. This class will study a variety of Lewis's work, including selected essays, Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, Till We Have Faces, That Hideous Strength, and some titles from The Chronicles of Narnia. Students will encouraged in their Christian faith and challenged in how they think about their own culture. 

Who is it for? 

Due to the intellectual rigor of Lewis's writing, I recommend this class for at least sophomore (age 15) and above. (Please see my recommended scope and sequence.) Students will be expected to participate in class discussions. Evaluation will be based on their participation as well as other assignments, including weekly journaling, one short writing assignment, and a term project/presentation. (Please note that CTT elective classes have less emphasis on formal writing than the core year-long courses.)

How does it work? 

Class meets online for two hours per week. Along with the reading assignments, students are provided with discussion questions to help prepare for class. Parents can  check their students' progress and grades online throughout the semester (grades are updated monthly). 

The tutor for this course is Melodee Skiles.

Class Time: Mondays, 9am-11am Mountain (8-10 Pacific, 10-12 Central, 11-1 Eastern.). Begins January 2017.

The total cost for this 18-week course is $300. 

I loved this class! Everybody was friendly, Mrs. Skiles was very understanding and patient and I absolutely loved the way we were able to do our term projects. Mrs. Skiles let us go to our talents and use the way we understood C.S. Lewis' writings to create our main project. Overall I think this was a GREAT class and I would recommend it to anyone.
