This course is designed to give students a working knowledge of British Literature, from the Anglo-Saxon period through the Modern Era. It is also meant to prepare students for college level reading and writing. To do this, we will be reading and analyzing texts that are from a variety of literary periods and texts that speak to a variety of experiences. This will allow us to be exposed to new ideas and to build our literary analysis skills. We will be constantly writing, discussing, and reflecting in order to build our analytical, communication, and writing skills and in doing so, allow us to explore and challenge the ideas presented to us in these literary works . We will do this through literature, dramatic works, journaling, Socratic seminars, informal discussions, and formal writing.
