This syllabus is designed for my eleventh (11th) grade American Literature and Composition class. Juniors in my class will learn thematically instead of chronologically. The purpose of my syllabus is to relay my love of English --- reading and writing -- to my students and, hopefully, inspire them to love the subject as much as I do.
As a Christian school educator, my syllabus includes the class bible verse for the year. The importance of reading literature with a biblical worldview is also addressed. I know that public school teachers can't include these portions of the syllabus in their classrooms.
