British Literature

Description:

British Literature is a year-long English elective designed for college bound students and will prepare students for the rigors of college-level English courses. The class provides a survey of British literature. We will use Holt-McDougal British Literature online textbook as our main source of material. Full length works included in the course are Shakespeare's Macbeth, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the classic 1984 by George Orwell.

The course is designed chronologically and moves from literature of the Middle Ages to contemporary British literature. Students will read both fiction and non-fiction pieces and experiment with different types of writing, including literary analysis, persuasive writing and research-based writing. There are also visual presentation projects incorporated into the class to teach students how to create an effective presentation.
