Grad English teachers were consulted for the selection of this book, and agree that it is an excellent choice for all Grad students.

We will be meeting online to work through the book “The Golden Goblet,” by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. The students will be expected to read the book in their own time either before the sessions start, or as we go through each section of the novel.

The content addressed will be linked to Social Studies, where we will look at various topics, such as the different trades and the areas in Egypt. We will also look at their religion, comparing it to the great hope we have in Christianity. There will be a final project to conclude this learning camp. The student will choose what topic to focus on and go deep with, and they can present it using their strengths and talents. We will also work on study skills, learning how to do things like mind mapping, flow charts, and tables. Work needs to be submitted by the student to their individualized teacher for LA and Social Studies.

*Book will need to be purchased or borrowed, it will not be supplied in this course.
