Literature & Composition Basic Skills

This course is designed to focus on World Literature, which includes such authors as Leo Tolstoy, Arthur Conan Doyle, Chinua Achebe, and Pablo Neruda. Other objectives include developing comprehension, vocabulary, and writing skills at a slower and more individualized pace than the college prep English 10. Special services and accommodations are used to support the students’ special learning needs. An anthology of world literature will be used to achieve an appreciation for foreign authors, cultures, and different genres of literature.

Prerequisite: Administrative placement and/or teacher recommendation.
