English IV: British Literature
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. 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: Some of these works deal with mature themes; therefore, this class is best suited to those that can handle mature topics, situations, and themes.

Jenny Cutler graduated in 2005 with a B.A. in Education, and in 2012 with a Master’s Degree in Multicultural Education, both from Eastern University. Jenny taught in both private and public schools until she had her first child and decided to stay home with him. She ran a tutoring business during her first few years as a stay at home parent but found teaching online to be an ideal fit for her, and she made the switch in 2014. Besides teaching online, Jenny serves as the children’s ministry director at her church and is a volunteer teacher at the local homeschool co-op her children attend.
