Opening Letter

Why Study World Literature?

Students will read, discuss, and write about world literature to better understand the cultural significance of classical and contemporary works.  Students will also discuss and reflect upon complex world issues and how these issues relate to them.  In addition, students will prepare for the English II Writing Test, Comprehensive Exam, and the PSAT. 

Students should be prepared to read 10 pages a night, write extensively, pay careful attention in class, and participate in class discussion in order to be successful in this course.  There is also a strong emphasis on vocabulary and grammar.
