The G7 English class combines literature, writing, grammar, vocabulary and literature analysis into one master course. The literature in the G7 was chosen to reinforce the cultural and historical developments that are being studied in the G7 history class.
While it is important for students to enjoy reading, and they will have assigned literature time, they will begin doing literature analysis as well to determine the strengths or weaknesses of a story, the skill of the author in presenting the story, and how to apply similar writing styles in their own writing. The ability to write well is being lost in our culture, but as an important part of The Good Curriculum, your student should see a marked improvement in his/her ability to express thoughts and arguments in a cohesive, logical manner. Parents will only be required to grade weekly essays.
