This course directly follows Introduction to Literature. 

Have you ever read a work of great literature and wondered how and why the author created the work they did? This course will introduce you to “literary reading”. This is a way to learn about the contexts of stories, including information about the author, textual elements, and other aspects of the assigned works of great literature. This curriculum/course provides opportunities for writing practice while simultaneously growing familiar with some of the greatest writers of all time. Each module directs the student to specific context resources, including readings, art, music, poetry, etc., via web links in the study guide. For your convenience, the links are listed by module. Please note that these pages offer links to online resources only. Off-line resources, as well as instructions for reading assignments and reference pages are found in the study guide (provided via PDF). 

This course will be interactive, and student driven. Students will complete reading, writing and projects.

This course is designed for the students to interact with the works of literature. Students will immerse themselves in many aspects of the work including art, music, history, setting and more. 

Some titles are available free online. Unabridged versions required.  Links are in the syllabus below.

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe 

Walden by Henry David Thoreau

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

No Fear Julius Caesar by Shakespeare

Homework will be listed in the PDF. Approximately 2- 3 hours of homework a week can be expected. This includes reading selections, writing assignments, viewing outside resources that correlate with text.
