This year, QQ is offering a new stream of online Literature-Elective Courses for students to take. The Literature-Elective Courses gives students the opportunity to delve into various types of literature (short stories, poems, novels, plays, etc.), gaining extensive practice, newfound knowledge and strategies in relation to the following areas: analytical and critical thinking skills, essay writing, quote analysis, reading comprehension practice, and vocabulary building. As students progress through these courses, it is the goal that students will attain a profound literary background (gaining exposure and in-depth insight to classic, well-known literary works) and will develop exemplary reading, writing, and analytical skills. In relation to QQ’s Core Courses (Novice, Intermediate, Proficient), the Literature-Elective Courses are intended to complement the extensive writing and public skills gained in these fundamental courses through discussing and analyzing various literary works.
