Unit Description

I like ending the year with a research project. It gives the students a chance to showcase their paraphrasing skills, it prepares them for the kind of assignments they'll face in college, and it emphasizes the importance of presenting a polished work. My English IV students have two options to choose from: 1) Research a dictator of their choosing—either a contemporary one or one from recent or ancient history—then compare and contrast their dictator's “fatal flaw” with that of a Shakespearean “tragic hero.” 2) Choose a novel or play we've studied together as a class and show how the themes and ideas in that text help you gain a better understanding of two contemporary texts--one fiction, one non-fiction. The AP Literature students choose a book of literary merit and research how one should interpret the novel.
