Themes in Literature | World Literature | U.S. Literature | English Literature
Our first and foremost goal in literature is to teach students how to think. This includes how to analyze literature and discover the underlying truth of God’s Word as it has either been applied or ignored.
We focus our study on the classics to better understand human nature and recognize the principles that allow a classic to last over the years and remain applicable to each new generation. Through this process, students become strong writers and develop a love of reading.
Students also become proficient at writing research papers, which develops the skill of forming an argument by supporting their thesis with evidence.
The standard four-year literature plan includes Themes in Literature in 9th grade, World Literature in 10th grade, U.S. Literature in 11th grade, and English Literature in 12th grade.
