World Literature: Classics

Course Length: Full year   |   Suggested Grade Level(s): 11, 12

In our World Literature: Classics course, students read the works of international authors and refine grammar and composition skills through numerous writing assignments. In addition to active reading and critical evaluation of literature, students’ writing instincts are further honed and challenged with a variety of essays (expository, compare/contrast, personal opinion, and interpretive), a biographical research paper, poetry, movie reviews, news articles, an analysis of symbolism and irony, and a one-act play.
