British and World Literature

Students read and analyze works of British and world literature that reflect the rich and diverse history of the Western world. As students progress through centuries of literature in a loose chronological arrangement, they will see how British and world literature has been shaped by concerns, values, and ideas that have intrigued, delighted, and challenged people throughout time. Throughout the course, poetry, short stories, novels, drama, and nonfiction provide opportunities for critical writing, creative projects, and online discussions. Students develop vocabulary skills and refresh their knowledge of grammar, usage, and mechanics in preparation for standardized tests.
