Literature & Composition

This course offers students an introduction to literary terms and elements in multiple genres focusing on short stories, drama, the novel, and poetry. All literature is interpreted from a Christian perspective and will be used as a springboard for both critical and creative writing. Students will learn to write well-developed essays as a foundational skill necessary for future academic writing. Attention will be given to reading comprehension, critical reading, and development of grammar and vocabulary skills. Independent reading is an additional component of this class. The summer reading project will be a graded.
