Elements of Literature (2nd Ed. / Updated Version)
This level continues to build on the Biblical and literary foundation provided in the 9th grade text. Literary concepts are illustrated with biblical examples and analyzed and applied to key literary selections. Units include Imaginative Comparison, Sound & Syntax, Allusion & Symbol, Irony, Folktale & Epic, Essay & Short Story, Poetry and Drama. The course culminates with Romeo and Juliet. Although we found the selections to be rather depressing in the first edition, the course was updated for 2012 and includes new authors and selections.
