Shakespeare | Literature and Composition – Full-Year Course for High School Students

“Alas poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio”- Hamlet

This class is an incredible chance for your student to know Shakespeare too. This course will walk through 6 of Shakespeare’s most profound works: 

Along with walking through each play at face value, we will be using Harold Bloom’s enlightening text Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human to take a deep dive into characterization and why Shakespearean plays have stood the test of time. As it is impossible to remove literature out of context from history, we will be analyzing the literature for its place in time and impact it had. 

Students will be challenged to read beyond the text, write thoughtful analysis, engage in socratic discussion, and more. There may be some mature themes discussed in line with the context of the play. This class is recommended for students 10th grade and up. Prerequisite: at least 1 year of a lit & comp.

Honors distinction is an OPTION for this course. Students who choose this option will write a 10 page capstone paper. Topics may include: cultural implications, character analysis, or comparative. Students are always encouraged to “create their own prompt,” for approval as well.

This class would pair well with Renaissance History, or Psychology.
