English 4: British Literature EVP (ENGL400e)
1.0 (yearlong course)
American Literature (ENGL300)
British Literature will explore the most enduring works of the western literary canon while offering writing projects that prepare students for English at the university level. Students write focused research papers on the philosophical development of each literary period, as well as persuasive and creative pieces on topics of their own choosing. There is an emphasis on the needs of seniors, with one-on-one coaching provided for writing college application essays, and an emphasis placed on interviews and speeches that can culminate the high school experience. The course aims to meaningfully articulate and synthesize high school memories while preparing students to begin their educational journeys anew.
