World Literature Honors EVP
Learning Resources Required For This Course Are Available For Purchase From Our Online Bookstore.
World Literature Honors introduces highly motivated students to a survey of classic texts from such authors as Dickens, Poe, Yeats, Tolstoy, and Hugo while teaching literary devices such as character development, plot, theme, setting, and imagery. Lessons in composition, grammar, and poetry are taught together with the literature selections to give the student an integrated course in English literature. Honors includes an emphasis on higher level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge and critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare a student to be successful in future upper-level and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
