Genre Studies: English: Grades 9-11: English Summer Course
In this course students are immersed in the literature of three genres: poetry, fiction, and drama. An in-depth study of literary and sound devices is offered – moving toward mastery. Students are expected to be familiar with the conventions of literary analysis in order to sharpen their critical interpretations and fashion academic arguments.
Sophisticated diction is integrated into literary discussions for vocabulary building. Writing skills are enhanced through the practice of writing literary criticism and through the use of a variety of rhetorical strategies: narration, description, argument, and exposition. Students are encouraged to become more than proficient in analysis of text and synthesis of academic argument.
