English IV

English IVStudents explore the world of big ideas in English IV, where they choose which path they will travel first while exploring highly engaging thematic units. Each path guides students through a series of literary pieces, allowing students to analyze the political, social, economic, and cultural messages of the time as well as the relevance of the literary works to the world students live in today.

Each path revolves around a central theme. The works in the course span a period of over 1000 years and have been written by authors who share common ideas but use a variety of literary genres to express their views. Whether it is the dramatic ending of a play or the colorful images in a verse of poetry, the words of these authors give students a new understanding of the world around them.

As students travel down each path, they create authentic pieces that engage them in higher-level learning and provide them with a greater understanding of literature and its connection to the world.
