World Literature (ENGL200)
1.0 (yearlong course)
Language Arts 9 (ENGL100)
World literature introduces classic texts from such authors as Dickens, Shakespeare, Yeats, Tolstoy, and Hugo while teaching literary devices such as character development, plot, theme, setting, and imagery. Lessons in composition, grammar, and poetry are taught together with the literature selections to give the student an integrated course in English literature.
Let’s journey around the world to learn about history’s greatest authors and their works! From the ancients like Confucius and Sophocles to Shakespeare, Tennyson, Hugo, Golding, and Orwell, we will explore what makes their masterpieces stand the test of time and still challenge us today. Explore universal themes in thought-provoking discussions with your classmates. You will also improve your vocabulary and improve your writing skills.

I really liked that there were so many videos, especially with the poems. I have a hard time understanding poems, and having videos of them being read aloud made it easier.
It was very organized.
I enjoyed this class and I'm looking forward to the next semester!
