Description: This high school literature course will help students learn and improve skills in reading, analyzing, and writing about literature.  This course will provide an introduction for students who have done little literary analysis, but will also be challenging enough for more experienced students.  Using short stories, novels, poetry, and drama, students will learn the key elements of literature and become familiar with recognizing literary devices.  They will then take what they have learned and write analysis essays and shorter writing assignments.  This course will also guide students in recognizing an author’s worldview and comparing it to the Biblical worldview so that they may exercise discernment in all their reading.  This class will provide one full credit in English.  Note: This class is open to eighth graders who are strong readers.  Additional note: For students who struggle with reading, this is an excellent course, as a majority of the concepts are taught using short stories.  If you are concerned about your student’s ability to complete this course, please email or meet with me.  My goal is to make this a valuable experience for all students and to help them succeed!
