Through the integrated study of English and Literature, students will develop a growing appreciation, even a love of reading, writing, and discovering! This is a survey course where the genres of literature are studied, dividing the 30-week course into distinct studies of Poetry, Literary Terms, Drama, Novels, Grammar, Short Story, and Essay Writing. Using a variety of resources, but following a tried and tested program, the students will engage with and respond to (in class and writing assignments) such classics as Shakespeare's Plays, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Importance of Being Earnest, and the works of Whitman, Poe, Silverstein, and others.

This class is intended to be a 9th–10th grade lead into Literary Analysis and the upper-level Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW) classes offered for the 11th and 12th grades.
