The Evolution of the Horror Story

Enter the unknown. Journey into the foundations of fear, from ancient times through the present. In the course we will look at literature selections which focus on the things that have kept us (and our ancestors) awake in the dead of night. Each class, we will examine a different “horror of the week,” such as: the supernatural, werewolf lore, or the inhabitants of the deep, dark forest. Students will examine works from well-known authors, such as Charles Dickens and Alfred Lord Tennyson alongside modern authors, such as Max Brooks and Stephen King. Students will be asked to analyze the selected literary works, the time periods in which they were written, and their own reaction to fears which have survived generations. In addition to the classwork in each meeting, students will be required to complete a cumulative project outside of class.  Class is worth 1 English credit.

12 classes: Monday and Wednesday (meets 2x per week for 6 weeks), 1:00-4:00 pm, Wednesday, July 6-Monday, August 15, 2022, Salem High School-Room A160.  Tamsyn Walker.


Quantitative Reasoning

This math class includes different skills such as adding/subtracting and multiplying polynomials, factoring basic quadratics, applications of basic quadratics, sequences (arithmetic and geometric), linear and exponential functions, and basic stats (mean, median, mode, and sampling methods). Students will be responsible for completing a project by the end of the class that is stats-based. Class is worth 1 math credit.

12 classes, Tuesday and Thursday (meets 2x per week for 6 weeks), 12:00-3:00 pm, July 5-August 11, 2022, Salem High-Room A160. Kate Boyd.
