Twelfth Grade Literature

Description: In this course we’ve chosen some of the very best literature, which includes an in-depth reading of Anna KareninaA Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations. These readings will increase in difficulty from the previous course, and are works that model heroes, virtues, and high ideals. This class is designed to strengthen reading skills, inspire students to love what is good and noble in life, and to enhance a student’s ability to evaluate literature. Students should devote approximately 60 minutes a day for this course. The grade is based on participation, periodic quizzes, periodic essay questions, and final tests over each work. The essays encourage a deeper consideration of the text and train students to mark important elements of the story. This class is worth 1 high school credit in English, Language Arts, or Literature.

Grade Level: 10-12 (ages 16-18). 10th graders must be very strong readers.

Prerequisites: Students should be very strong readers, proficient with English grammar, able to construct grammatically complete sentences, and able to edit any written work with the help of a parent (if needed).
