This is a rigorous course for college-bound seniors. It involves the study of college-level texts by authors from many nations and regions, which may include (but is not limited to) South America, England, Ireland, Europe, Russia, Germany, and the United States. Special stress is placed on literary skills like close reading, interpretation of critical perspectives, literary terminology, and scholarly writing. This class sharpens the skills needed for success on such formal/timed written assessments such as the ACT and advanced, in-class, college composition tests.
Students are encouraged to apply for dual credit through UMSL.
This course counts as a weighted grade.
