Reading is easy—understanding what you’ve read is the hard part. It’s too often that students finish reading a novel without ever realizing what the author was alluding to or what anything meant beyond face value. YAPA Kids’ reading program seeks to address this issue by not only exploring different literary texts, but also engaging in in-depth rhetorical analysis in order to best understand each author’s underlying message. Through the class, students will also be able to strengthen their aptitude in reading comprehension and expand their vocabulary. Students of all grade levels are welcome to join and improve their ability to read critically!
