Together we'll learn about some of the literary and cultural contributions of the Anglo-Saxons; we'll read selections from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, study Shakespeare, and explore the Romantic Poets and Dickens. While we're at it we'll even sneak in some non-British literature. We'll examine the concept of the hero, past and present. We'll study vocabulary, compose personal narratives, do research, prepare for the ACT/SAT, and sharpen our media literacy skills.
