In World Literature, students will improve their critical reading skills by studying classical and contemporary literary works from around the globe. Readings will include a wide variety of literary genres from short stories and novels (fiction), to plays, nonfiction and poetry. Students will improve their analytical reading and writing skills through written responses to the literature and through guided discussion questions. Students will have the chance to take part in lively class discussions including Socratic seminars and collaborative group work. The course will focus on improving students’ critical reading skills and reading comprehension. Students will be taught to respond to literature with focused analytical writing. Students will write analytical essays, edit, and revise their work carefully; they will also incorporate lessons in writing, grammar and vocabulary. The course is designed to stimulate and challenge students as well as to improve students’ English Language Arts skills.
