Summer Session begins June 12. Confirmed enrollments accepted through June 12.

The English Survey courses focus on reading and writing skills through the use of high-interest literature and current event articles. Grammar and vocabulary refreshers are also featured in each week’s assignments. The first semester focuses on the theme of technology and how its rapid changes are affecting our society. Students read short stories by Ray Bradbury, a novella by Ayn Rand (Anthem), and others. They review and practice several different essay forms. The second (B) semester’s theme is the changing perceptions of society throughout each decade. Students read samples of literature and non-fiction articles from several historic periods, and continue to practice and refine writing skills. The novel for this semester is Stanley Gordon West’s Until They Bring the Streetcars Back.

Course materials: Most required works are available online or provided within the course. The two required novels, Ayn Rand’s Anthem, and Stanley Gordon West’s Until They Bring the Streetcars Back, may be borrowed from a library, purchased, or provided by the school.
