We will be exploring World Literature Part 1 (ancient literature through the Middle Ages), which will include a healthy dose of ancient mythology, Greek tragedy, The Odyssey, Arthurian legend, Beowulf, Norse myths, The Lord of the Rings, Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, fairy tales, and selections from 1,001 Arabian Nights.
To go along with all of this great literature, I’ll be assigning and grading writing assignments and going over the English portion of the ACT/SAT to help with test prep/grammar/editing skills. Returning students will be given more in-depth writing challenges, while my new students will start at the beginning.
It will easily be worth 1 language arts credit for this 1.5-hour class.
This course begins September 4, 2019, and runs through May 15, 2020.
