This post is to allow new students to sign up for the remaining 8 weeks of our course.
High School British Literature
From the oldest English writing, Beowulf, to the Canterbury Tales, to the bard of all bards, Shakespeare, and the eloquent bardess, Mary Shelley, and her Frankenstein, to Mr. Dickens, we will read classic tales, poems, short stories, plays, speeches, essays, and novels. Through discussion, students will learn literary analysis. Students will also master the 5 paragraph essay, going through the entire writing process. Writings will include all 4 types: argumentative, expository, personal narrative, and descriptive. Creative writing assignments are included. Each class consists of a short lecture, discussion of the readings, and an activity such as writing techniques, a mock debate, and language games. No textbook purchase is required. Please contact Ms. Erin if you have questions about the class: [masked], [masked].
