British Literature

This class will be a great experience in the great tradition of British Literature. We will cover many of the biggest names in the genre, such as Dickens, Austen, Wordsworth, and Tennyson as well as some lesser-known greats. Our exploration of British Literature will have a focus on the works of Shakespeare as well. Students will learn through readings, class discussions, reflections writing, memorization, and more. This class is designed to help give students a solid foundation in literature as well as improved reading comprehension, interpretation, and writing skills. Learning Language Arts Through Literature will be our guide, with supplemental materials used in class as well. In all, it will be a rigorous study of challenging works, but we will be sure to have fun along the way.

By the end of this class, students will have an appreciation for novels, poems, and plays of the British Isles as well as the skills to find meaning in the texts and respond to works in clear, well-thought-out, writing.

Required Text:

This class would pair well with our upper level high school courses, such as Physics and Algebra II.
