Our whole year will consist of studying British Literature and following the theme chronologically through each literary period.
My theme for the year is:
A Good Man is Hard to Find
We will start where it all started, with Heroism, then, learn about Fuedalism, play with Shakespeare, read about the Restoration and the Romantics, enjoy the Victorian era, and go up the river to understand Colonialism.
My objective is to ensure that students comprehend the connection between the time, the history and the literature we study and then how it applies to them personally.
And, because English is reading, writing, speaking and thinking critically, we will be doing a lot of each of these things.
