Let a friend know!

Literature & Composition I is a year-long, 1 credit class that counts toward required high school level language arts in literature and composition.

This college preparatory English course is an introduction to literary analysis and is best suited to students in the 9th or 10th grades who wish to learn introductory literary analysis and associated creative and evaluative essay writing, or for those in 11th and 12th grades who need a high school English credit but who may not wish to take an advanced writing or analysis course.

Students will read and analyze classic stories, essays, novels, and poems of major literary periods and complete writing assignments as guided by the instructor. The course is presented from a Christian worldview, and classroom discussions will foster a deeper consideration of how ideas from each work are placed into the historical and cultural contexts of its time.

The course will introduce basic literary analysis as well as the writing process, including how to incorporate the use of writing tools, such as a thesaurus, into that process, cultivating skills in essay development, arrangement, and style.

    Excellent class and absolutely wonderful teacher who truly cares about her students. I appreciated the timely and detailed feedback, as well as the interesting and creative assignments. I am looking forward to when my son will have the opportunity to learn from Mrs. Ferrell in the future.
