High School English: Modern American Literature in Context

Stephanie Carta, B.Sc.
Average rating:4.6Number of reviews:(46)
In this course, students will read a diverse selection of poetry, short stories, and plays from modern and contemporary American literature, focusing on multi-cultural perspectives and learning to connect literature with other arts, history, and social studies.

Class Experience

Students will be introduced to a wide range of American literature and authors, their works, lives, arguments, and socio-cultural perspectives, exploring America through its literary and popular cultures as a place, an idea, and a people. They will learn why fiction can offer some truthful perspectives on life and begin to write about their own perspectives on the literature and the topics it raises.    
I teach high school English, including AP English Literature and AP English Language, and also history and social studies, so I am able to approach this course in a way that is multi-disciplinary. I also write professionally and use what I learned in my courses in the "real world" of journalism, technical, and creative writing. I've been published in various humanities and professional journals, magazines, and websites. I especially love writing about films and music.  

I approach the study of English in two ways: the formal academics of literature and writing and also the real world of reading and writing in the world of work and life. I'm a progressive and open-minded teacher who allows students to express themselves in their writings and in their conversations with me and their peers.

The entire course will feature candid perspectives on questions of identity and political power in the United States. While graphic language will be avoided, all of the readings and assignments assume that students are mature enough, academically and socially, to understand the themes.
