Class Description

This class will analyze a series of novels, plays, and non-fiction books that students will eventually study in all area public and private high schools. Our studies will also help students prepare for AP English Language and Literature essays while learning tips and techniques for handling SAT and ACT-type reading comprehension. We will cover a new set of books from this year to next year within the following groups: Shakespeare, Greek Mythology, American Novel, World Novel, and Historical Non-Fiction.
Eligible students: Those who take the RAC course this year, those who now take our Advanced Middle School Writing class and/or are our older and more skilled students in the Intermediate Middle School Writing Class, plus new students to our program.
