    This honors level course will focus  on research and writing as well as an intensive study of literature organized around specific themes. Selected literature will include content covered in the required course but explorations will be much more extensive. Students will be expected to refine their writing and literary analysis skills and complete a research project. The pace is rigorous and there will be numerous writing assignments designed to promote the development  of  a personal writing style. Students should anticipate some writing and reading each night. Portfolio assessment of writing occurs in May.
