Course Description

Welcome to Independent Survey of Literature

Ask any ISL alumnus and they’ll probably tell you that ISL was their VERY FAVORITE class. Can you think of a better way to spend a class period than relaxing and reading for 60 minutes every day? ISL is designed for students who enjoy reading for pleasure and wish to expand their literary background.  The requirements for each book are intended to promote reading skills, communication skills, and critical thinking skills. And even better…there is no homework, unless, of course, you want to READ or work on the ISL blog, NSA Reads! All of your work CAN be done during the class period. So find a good book, settle into your “spot” in the library, and forget about everything else…until it's time to move on to your next class! I can’t wait to hear about the books you’ve chosen to read!
