World Literature & Composition -Junior High

Literature and Composition will be a fun, dynamic introduction to basic persuasive essay writing, develop student’s stylistic techniques through poetry forms and tropes and get kids reading, talking and thinking about amazing literature! We will do a simple overview of Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance and Modern World, with a Shakespeare selection in each unit. Each book will be treated like a simple unit study where we’ll spend 3 weeks discussing the literature,  diving into the genre, author, plot, character and setting. We’ll use the literature as source text to create persuasive and compare and contrast essays and fun creative writing projects. Students will be expected to read the literature and participate fully in a dynamic, fun class.

Good writing is good thinking and this class will hone your student’s critical thinking abilities as they wrestle with concepts in the literature as well as the elements of creating good writing.

Literature List:

The Book of Job, Children’s Homer, Julius Caesar
Beowulf, St. George, Macbeth
Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Pilgrims Progress, Henry V
The Great Brain, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, 12th Night
