In this course students will study highly accessible and contemporary genres (novels, dramas, essays, poetry, and films) to understand the nature of transformation. Investigating and portraying different roles and perspectives, students will identify, interpret, and evaluate character evolution – how people adapt, survive and triumph over challenges.  

Furthermore, students will explore how and why artists transform creative works from one medium to another. Ultimately, this course will examine what it means to be human in a (sometimes) complex and impersonal world.  This course will satisfy the reading requirement for senior year.

This writing course provides students opportunities to develop and strengthen their writing, speaking, and listening skills. In a workshop setting, students will practice proofreading, editing, and revision of multiple drafts before they publish final products. Students will read models that will deepen their understanding of the writer’s craft, and they will experiment with technology in the production of alternative texts such as digital storytelling and/or Power Point presentations.  Instruction in grammar, mechanics, and usage will be provided as needed. This course will satisfy the writing requirement for senior year.
