This course incorporates living books, as well as written assignments, with the philosophy that solid writing skills are partially developed by examination of excellent models. Featuring writing from around the world, classic works translated from many languages, makes reading and comprehension more challenging than our other literature courses. Literary elements, figurative language derived from other nations' voices and analysis combine for deep discussion. Students should be able to write well and actively participate in this higher level literature course.
Weekly practice reinforces the concepts taught in class and the teacher is available during live office hours and by email to assist students. Assignments are graded and students receive a mid-term report as well as a year-end course credit report. Students may take this class for Honors credit.
