British Literature

So many books, so little time! Let’s take a jaunt through British Literature where we’ll examine novels, plays, poetry and prose. Students will learn through reading, listening, discussion and analysis as we examine Chaucer, Shakespeare, Austen and Lewis, just to name a few. Students are expected to read assigned books outside of class, participate in class discussions, games and written assignments. For our Shakespeare study, students will be given the opportunity to memorize and perform a final scene.
