This class meets for a longer time period in order to have ample class time. This class is the equivalent of an 11th grade high school English credit. Students will complete a rigorous study of American Literature from the 1600’s to modern times. We will watch The Great Gatsby and Raisin in the Sun in class as we read the novel. Students will complete a number of works—short stories, essays, poems, plays and novels—chronologically with a focus on the authors and the historical period in which the work was written or takes place. Each unit will be based on a time period, and the history of that time will be investigated. The literature will be looked at in relation to the time period. Students will complete several writing assignments and projects. I will provide poetry, short stories and essays. Each week, I will give students a week’s worth of assignments. An honors credit option is available.
