Foundations in Writing Through the Rise of Western Civilization


The content and assignments in each class period (see times above) are geared toward the chosen grade level.  However, high school students of any grade may enroll in either class, modifications can be made at parent/student request.​


Great literature can change and shape a person. High school students will focus on analyzing primary elements of literature: setting, plot, characterization, imagery, allusions, parallelism, and much more. From a Christian perspective, students will learn to view literature and the author's intentions. Students will read pieces of literature before completing a variety of associated assignments.

Students will put literary analysis skills into practice as they study and write about great works of literature from around the world. In-home assignments will consist of novel reading, writing assignments, projects, etc.


Because this course meets the requirements for high school credits, homework is required in order to maintain a full and complete understanding of the material presented. The classes are designed to give a full class curriculum with instruction on Tuesday, however parents are still the main teacher for their student. All assignments will be given with a weekly “homework” schedule to help keep your student on track. It is best to pace your student throughout the week to help them retain the most information. Each class is a full course and does not need additional assignments to be completed but parental guidance and follow-up is necessary.

Grading will be based on accumulated point totals which may be earned through reading, homework, projects,  testing and quizzes. In order to receive grades for these complete courses, students must complete all the required work for each course subject.  Although grades are given for these assignments and  this class, they are not official transcripts.
