Course Overview:

In this course, students will build expertise in common core reading and writing strategies through focusing on literature from various genres and time periods. Classical literature texts will be ‘paired’ with contemporary texts to allow students to see similarities in themes and subject matter, thereby increasing understanding of the more complex classical literature. Students will be exposed to common themes across time, such as the power of good and evil, revenge, innovation, the strengths and weaknesses of human character. Students will use experiential learning, problem-solving, critical thinking, and project-based learning to read, write, speak, listen, and use language effectively in the 21st century.  Along with reading and analyzing literature, students will be writing argumentative, informative and narrative essays. Students will focus on the writing process by working with graphic organizers, drafting, conferencing, revising, and creating a final project.
