Course Taught:Honors English 10 offers motivated students a chronological survey of classic literature of western civilization. Students will study various genres of literature from ancient Greece and the classic writers of England. Throughout the study of core works and supplemental novels, students will explore the nature of a literary classic, its universality, and its relevance to modern man. To complement the study of literature, students will write for various purposes and audiences, including a controlled literary research paper. Besides offering an accelerated reading and writing program, the course also provides opportunities to practice effective speech techniques. An ambitious independent vocabulary program is another important component of this course.
