Literature and Composition emphasizes the development of critical reading, writing, and thinking skills through the lens of reading, analyzing, and writing about imaginitive literature (fiction, poetry, drama) from various periods and exploring how they reflect social values and ethics. Through close reading, discussion, and critical analysis, students will be asked to consider a work's structure, style and themes as well as its use of figurative language, imagery, and symbolism. Students will also deepen their understanding of the way writers use language purposely and improve their own compositional skills. Students should be prepared to work independently and complete a summer reading requirement.
Students may earn English 200 dual credit upon successful completion of second semester and English 110 dual credit upon successful completion of second semester. This class is recommended for students who plan to attend a four-year college.
