This course is built to state standards and informed by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) standards.

The class will also emphasize multi-cultural, multi-generational, mythological, and ecological topics.
Students study short stories by authors such as Bharati Mukherjee and Edgar Allan Poe, learning how to create believable characters and develop setting and plot.
Likewise, students read poetry by canonical greats such as W. Yeats and Emily Dickinson as well as contemporary writers such as Pablo Neruda, Sherman Alexie, and Alice Notley.
