Students explore World Literature chronologically, and will begin to recognize major political and literary shifts in power and sentiment. Discussion of authors, worldviews, and time periods are integral to this course. Critical thinking skills are developed as students read, analyze, and write about the ideas of authors through the ages confronting the various worldviews that emerge through this study. Class discussion and group projects enhance the classroom experience. This course is complementary to the World History course. It is strongly recommended they be taken concurrently.
