Students will learn the major literary movements and authors of modern American literature.  They will explore literary terms and styles, as well as how to discuss literature both orally and written.
I have a master's degree from the University of Cambridge, as well as 15 years teaching experience in history and literature.  I have approval and experience teaching AP English Literature and AP US History from the College Board.
Homework Offered
Students will be expected to complete reading and writing assignments for each week. Some weeks are longer reading assignments and some weeks are shorter, but students can expect to spend a couple of hours each week reading.
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
For parental guidance, the works we will read might have moments of violence or deal with sensitive subjects such as racism.  At Outschool, we strive to meet our own high standard of inclusivity and the goal of barring discrimination and prejudice.  
Source links will be provided weekly for reading.
