Have you ever wished you could enjoy reading great literature, but found it impossible to understand? In British Literature, students will discover the tools they need to handle the rigors of reading and critical thinking at the college level! They will broaden their cultural literacy and sharpen their sensitivity to aesthetics within the God-given gifts of language and storytelling. The class will include a broad array of works representing each era of British Literature, from authors such as Geoffrey Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Robert Burns, Charles Dickens, and C.S. Lewis. Short writing assignments will be also given with each unit to build student’s skills in a variety of fiction and non-fiction genres.
