In this class you will read poetry and fiction; you will then explore your understanding of this literature with your own writing. This is an English class, so you can expect that reading and writing will be the focus of your discussions and your goals. If you don’t enjoy reading and writing, be careful that you don’t unfairly prejudice yourself against the material.
In this class you will study various cultures from the dawn of human history to the Late Middle Ages, focusing particularly on the various art forms and their ability to express each culture’s values. The visual arts, literature, architecture, music and every other means of human expression can be shaped and imbued with a lasting power. It is this wondrous power that resonates long after civilizations have vanished in the dust of history. You will study some of these performances that endured and perhaps discover as much about yourself as you discover about the past.
Continues the study of expository writing. Students read and analyze writing and discursive techniques of interpretation, argument, and research.
