Description: Reading and discussing great literature creates better readers, and better readers are better thinkers.  College Prep Literature will provide students the opportunity to read several of the books high school students “should” read before college.  As we read, students will receive instruction on how to be engaged and responsive readers.  Complex concepts such as authors’ use of irony, syntax, diction, allusion, etc. will also be taught, which will strengthen their understanding of what they read and how it is written, readying them for college-level interpretation.  Grades will be based on participation in class discussions, reading journals, and other short writing assignments.  The first book of the year will be selected by the teacher; subsequent books will be chosen by the class from The College Board:  101 Great Books Recommended for College-Bound Readers.  (Students are encouraged to purchase books in which they can make notes.)  Students should expect 3-4 hours of homework per week.  This class is worth a full English credit.  This class taken along with College Prep Writing meets the requirements of an Honors Level English class.
