In this English 4 course students will connect with beautiful British literature throughout history. We will study works chronologically and discover them both from within the historical and literary context they were written in as well as an exploration of their impact today. From Beowulf to modern literature there is much to discover – early and important Christian writings, struggle, politics, poetry, social classes, war, murder, intrigue, it’s all here! Come join us for a fascinating look at many significant pieces of English writing. English IV is a highly interactive class and includes discussion, vocabulary, projects, and papers. Because of the dialogue nature of this british literature 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.
