British Literature Syllabus (© 2011) $25.00

We use ten books, chosen from various historical periods in British history, over the course of the year such as Beowulf, Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott, Henry V and A Midsummer-Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith, David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, Emma by Jane Austen, and The Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis. We also provide the student with extensive literature lists broken down by the various historical time periods so they can choose other texts if they have already read the primary texts. The student also makes an in-depth study of British poetry using The Harp and Laurel Wreath. We also include paper topics for all of the main texts along with a list of alternate topics both general and specific to give the student practice with writing. The British Literature Syllabus has a day-by-day breakdown of this course along with paper topics, questions for discussion, answer keys, detailed literature lists, and a variety of teaching resources including Twelfth Grade Subject Rubrics, Learning Objectives, and grading charts. This is a 1 year, 1 credit course.
