Course Description:
This is the second of two courses that comprise English 11. In this course, the student will focus on the literary movements that comprise American literature, and trace the chronology of national literature from the Modernist through the Contemporary period. In reading and responding to these diverse literature selections, the student will gain a thorough understanding of a myriad of fiction and nonfiction genres, including short stories, essays, poetry, drama, memoirs, and autobiographies. The student will also read F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby. Ernest Hemingway's novella The Old Man and the Sea may be read instead of The Great Gatsby. In reading these American literature selections, the student will understand longer works of literature in their historical and literary context. Writing instruction guides the student through the process of composing a literary analysis and a research paper. Throughout the course, the student expands his vocabulary in context. The mastery of both critical vocabulary and grammar skills helps the student become a more thoughtful and effective reader and writer.
