High School Writing II: Literary Analysis

The ability to analyze and write about literature is a critical skill for college and a useful skill for life.  (Yes, really!) If the idea of analyzing literature sounds like it squeezes all the fun out of reading, have no fear--Ms. starr wants to help you enjoy literature, first and foremost.  However, when you learn about the tools authors use and why they use them, you will see things in literature you never saw before.  The class will teach you how to recognize the various tools authors use and, more importantly, how to write about them.  You will learn how to figure out what to write about, how to craft an argument, how to write a thesis statement, how to structure your essay, and how to cite your sources. 

Students will have weekly reading and writing assignments.

Prequesite:  Students must have basic essay writing experience, such as writing 5-paragraph essays or the equivalent.
