Students will examine fascinating and significant literature from around the globe, spanning from ancient times to the modern era. The geography, history, culture, and worldview of each work will be explored while literary analysis skills are practiced and continue to be refined. This course offers students the unique opportunity to discover that many themes encountered through literature are struggles of all humanity and not limited to time or location. Students will think deeply about their own views and their connection to the world around them through these powerful selections. This is a highly interactive class and includes discussion, vocabulary, projects, and papers. Because of the dialogue nature of this course, a functioning microphone will be required.

SPECIAL NOTE #1: Tuition includes a user license for Yellowdig, an internal communications platform for students to use within Canvas. Yellowdig promotes deeper discussion and critical thinking skills.

SPECIAL NOTE #2: Some of these works deal with mature themes; therefore, this class is best suited to those that can handle mature topics, situations, and themes.

  1. Michelle W.

    My son completed this class as a sophmore last year with Mrs. Cutler and he absolutely loved it. He found the discussion enjoyable and challenging and would regularly come to me after class telling me how interesting the discussion had been! Mrs. Cutler is extremely skilled at engaging each student and providing individualized feedback and this was just invaluable for my son. He cannot wait to take another class with Mrs. Cutler!
