Course Descriptions

English Literature & Writing

This class is unique in the sense that it is a mix of 8th-12th grade English. However, because of the smaller class sizes, each class is able to accommodate each student’s specific needs and understanding. In this class, students will perform close critical readings of literature in a variety of genres from both the British and the American traditions, as well as a sampling of world literature based upon each term. Students are expected to write critically and analytically about the literature they read….students can expect to read a number of novels, plays, essays, poems, and short stories. Basic grammar, sentence structure, spelling and vocabulary will also be incorporated within the lesson plans. Students will be required to work on projects, group work, essays and reading work along with any applicating assignments.
