Junior English focuses on the study of American Literature. We will be looking to see how literature reflects our culture and traditions, belief systems and various perspectives by focusing on the concept of the American Dream - What is the American Dream? Does it change? Is it possible for everyone? As we do so, we will also be focused on academic writing, moving from writing literary analysis to using critical theory to writing a critical literary analysis based upon reading and research.
