This course focuses on literature, but we examine what these literary works tell us about points in history. We maintain a timeline as we move through developments in different parts of the world. This gives us a broad backdrop as we zoom in on some specific points in time to view the events through a literary lens. Students are expected to master some vocabulary from our literary works and to contribute to the class's picture of history through a few presentations or reports on important historical figures or events. Although we do some writing, this class is not a composition class.
This class provides one high school English credit. Since we discuss quite a bit of history, I also provide a list of suggestions for outside work that would allow the student to earn a world history credit.
