Intended for those with at least one year of previous study of the techniques taught in Institute for Excellence in Writing, students will continue work toward mastery of the elements from this program as they present their responses to the excellent novels they will read. Class discussions of time periods, authors, themes and ideas within the stories will enhance their understanding of the readings while writing assignments build confidence in their writing skills. Vocabulary and grammar are also built into the program. This course pairs well with American History with Art or World History with Art courses.
