English 2 Honors: World Literature EVP (ENGL250e)
1.0 (yearlong course)
A grade of an 85% or higher in the subject area course taken the previous year.
English 2 World Literature is designed to grow students in their studies of various world genres of literature, equipping them with historical and cultural knowledge for deeper contextual understanding. Students will pursue intentional approaches of clear and coherent writing through the use of mentor texts and formal writing assignments. Students will also engage in active learning opportunities, conversing and collaborating with one another to build on others’ ideas, while expressing their own ideas clearly and persuasively. The course also incorporates an intentional biblical worldview in which students may approach their academic pursuits with this biblical lens, applying these thematic concepts to not only their studies, but also different facets of their lives.
This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge and critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare a student to be successful in future upper level and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.

Have you ever wanted to travel the world? Do you wonder what the people of these different world regions and different time periods felt, thought about, and experienced? Reading literature from different countries and cultures allows us to gain such deep insight to various people groups and their approaches to daily living.. I have found that the more I learn and experience the cultures of other places, the more I understand more of my own culture!
In this English 2 World Literature class, we will be traveling the world — virtually-speaking! From the Far East countries of Japan and Korea…to the busy streets of India….the mountains of Afghanistan…the deserts of Sudan…the rich heritage of France…the warmth of South America…and the tropical breeze of the Caribbean. Our academic passports will become fully stamped with our cultural experiences of studying literature from each of these regions. As we journey together in this class taking in the beauty of such a diverse world, we will discover more about the Creator of it and how He cares for each one of us!
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
I really like the weekly quiz! It is a great way in class to earn a couple extra points and review what we talked about in class.
