This course will address six important literary elements: character, theme, structure, conflict, moral tone, and point of view. These elements will be explored through the reading of various short stories, novels, and plays that range from the classics to the contemporary. In addition, students will become more grounded in grammar, vocabulary and writing.
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Romeo and Juliet - William Shakespeare
The Odyssey - Homer
