Senior CP English

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

– Paulo Coelho 

This semester, we will explore the question of how we make sense of the world around us, and how we synthesize that perspective in the context of our own morality. In addition, we will use our literature to explore the many ways in which we consider the “survivor.”

To explore these questions, we will read following novel:

    The Things They Carried

We will also explore the following resources:

      Drinking Coffee Elsewhere

      Life of Pi

You will engage in literature circles to read a novel that you select from a wide range of options.

Finally, over the course of the semester, you will work on an independent “Passion Project” that invites you to explore a topic that is important to you. This project will involve reading, writing, research, and presentation. More info will come soon!
