Class DescriptionIntroduction to Literature and Composition is a year-long, high school-level language arts course.

This one-credit hour introductory course is best suited to 9th or 10th graders seeking fundamentals of literary analysis and essay writing or 11th and 12th graders needing a high school English credit without advanced composition requirements.

For centuries, humanity has used storytelling to pass on culture, ethics, and moral principles to the next generation. In this course, students will read classic short stories, novellas, plays, and poems that have stood the test of time, and they will analyze these stories for essential themes, worldviews, and values. Short stories and readings provide a broader exposure to authors and genres while demanding fewer reading hours than full-length novels. All chosen texts are in the public domain and free from sources like Gutenberg online or audiobook format from Librivox. The instructor will provide copies or links to texts, and a complete list will be provided before the start of class.

Introduction to Literature and Composition aims to teach essential writing skills while fostering an appetite for worthwhile literature. Classic stories have the power to spark an interest in becoming what C.S. Lewis called the few: those individuals who have developed a love of great storytelling in general and quality books in particular. The course is taught from a Christian worldview.

Students will engage in creative & persuasive essay writing, character analysis, and lively classroom discussions that encourage critical thinking and value clarification. Moreover, they will develop the essential high school writing skills of outlining, thesis formation, supporting assertions, citing sources, and spotting common writing errors.

    Excellent class and absolutely wonderful teacher who truly cares about her students. I appreciated the timely and detailed feedback, as well as the interesting and creative assignments. I am looking forward to when my son will have the opportunity to learn from Mrs. Ferrell in the future.
