The Red Badge of Courage

In this three-week course, your student will complete daily writing drills based around Stephen Crane’s novella The Red Badge of Courage (1895). During the first two weeks, your student will read the book and build skills at the sentence- and paragraph-levels. During the second and third weeks, he or she will construct and write an analytical essay with our curriculum as a guide. By following our basic instructions, your student will progress easily from the thesis-statement to the outline to the final draft.

Note to the Parent: This book includes mild to severe cursing. You may wish to pre-read with a black pen in hand.
