Welcome to Mrs. Thornock's English Class

Welcome to English 11!

Why do we read and study literature? To answer this question, I like to quote Edgar Roberts who states, “Literature helps us grow, both personally and intellectually. It opens doors for us. It stretches our minds. It develops our imagination, increases our understanding, and enlarges our power of sympathy” (Literature, An Introduction). In this class, we will be reading a variety of text that I hope will help us grow as students and individuals, in order to make connections to our lives and develop a deeper understanding of the world around us. We will be examining and studying American Literature and discuss how it has shaped and influenced the course of our nation. I am looking forward to having you as a student this year and sharing with you my passion for literature.
