WHAT IS L.E. 8 BOOKS?

L.E. stands for Literary Elements. With the help of 8 carefully selected books that teach 8 literary skills: character, plot, figurative language, etc., students read and learn with a focus. This makes students mindful of the elements and what to look for during reading.

Students face a challenge in English Language Arts, to distinguish and appreciate exceptional literature. Likewise, to consider how writers use language, symbolism, and other literary devices to foreshadow and determine outcomes. Knowing how to identify and use literary elements will make learning more meaningful and fun.

Our goal is for students to read beyond the words and literal meaning in order to be swept up by the multiple inferences that shape and drive their thinking. In order for students to use literary devices in their own writing, they must be able to recognize, interpret them, and explain why and how an author uses them.

Students that read with focus are better able to comprehend the text and its meaning, partly because they can identify more subtleties. The activities that teachers plan for with each focus will help engage them to enjoy reading. In the end, students use these elements, character, plot, setting, etc., in all parts of English and Language Arts acquisition.
