European Studies (Periods 3, 4, and 5/6 Block)

 
10th grade year in English class  is known as the "year of tragedy." It seems that all the literature we read explores the dark side of human nature. The curriculum begins with Dante's Inferno and Macbeth.  Then, we continue with Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm, and to end the year, Night. Although this list is not going to leave the reader appreciating the beauty of life, the literature listed does create the forum for in-depth analysis of human nature and an opportunity to discuss the causes of  evil. I like to think of it as depressing, yet intriguing.
