English 10 is devoted to the discussion and analysis of American Literature. We will begin with Literature that was created before the country began and we will work our way through time and history until we reach more contemporary pieces.
Our focus will be on Literature in the form of novels, short stories, poems, and essays. We’ll also cover plays, speeches, and some non-fiction work.
You will always have homework–there will ALWAYS be something to read. You should plan to spend at least 30 minutes a night reading, even if I haven’t assigned official homework. You will also be doing plenty of writing, and some of that will be done at home. Make sure that you keep up with both aspects of this class because it will be hard to pass if you fall behind in either area.
