    English 11 Q4

    From slave narratives to F. Scott Fitzgerald's roaring 1920's—English 11 will focus on the unique literary works and themes of American Literature. Our comprehension of these texts will be facilitated by analyzing and evaluating the literary elements, plot, theme, and character development. As part of this course, we will continue to hone writing skills by practicing multiple forms of writing. English 11 will specifically focus writing personal narratives and analyzing literary texts. This course will allow students to make real world connections to literature through project based assessments, the use of the most up to date tech tools, thoughtful group discussion, and formative writing assignments.

    A Raisin in the Sun

    "The play is honest. She has told the inner as well as the outer truth about a Negro family in the south-side of Chicago at the present time. Since the performance is also honest and since Sidney Poitier is a candid actor, A Raisin in the Sun has vigor as well as veracity and is likely to destroy the complacency of any one who sees it."

    -Brooks Atkinson, The New York Times, 1959

    As is the generation of leaves, so is that of humanity.
    The wind scatters the leaves on the ground, but the live timber
    Burgeons with leaves again in the season of spring returning.
    So one generation of men will grow while another dies.
    ~Homer, Iliad
