World Literature

What we do:

World literature reinforces the influential writers of different races, cultures, creeds, and ethnicities of the world in a constantly changing global landscape. Students read a variety of works from each major genre, such as Fiction, Non-fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Folk Literature.

Students are taught the importance of active reading—the act of engaging and making connections with what they read. They are encouraged to examine relationships between characters, conflicts,     and situations that often occur in literary works. Also, students are asked to read aloud to strengthen reading and comprehension skills, which enables them to strengthen their vocabulary skills.
