English III

Mrs. Katie Ristow

What do psalms, book burnings, a very smart rat and a tomboy named Scout have in common? All will be the subject of our literary adventures this year as we read, discuss and respond to wonderful novels, plays, short stories and poems. Beginning with a unit about Biblical poetry, we'll move on to talk about classics of American Literature. As we read, we will analyze, discuss and write about how these works reveal their author's worldview and impact our thinking and feeling. Our goals will be to understand, evaluate and appreciate literary works, within their historical context and measured against biblical truth.We'll also include attention to vocabulary growth, listening skills, and written and verbal communication excellence.
