Operation Lexicon - Madeleine L'Engle


The words of Madeleine L'Engle are specific, precise, and worthy of collection.

A lexicon is the collected vocabulary of a person. Over the course of 25 weeks, students will explore a cluster of words from the lexicon of Madeleine L'Engle. Using these words in an original way, with inspiration from favorites such as A Wrinkle in Time, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and A Wind in the Door, will help the budding wordsmith recognize the plasticity of language and delight in its beauty.
