167 Words1 Pages
We begin our year working with the novel "Lord of the Flies" and view it through the eyes of Sigmund Freud 's id, ego and super-ego theories. This unit specifically looks at literary analysis and introduces the thesis essay. Our next units follow the social studies curriculum and are run more like a civics class. We will be starting our antebellum/Cival War unit in January. This unit focuses on research skills and argumentative writing. From there we go to our Gilded Age unit. This unit is heavily based on thesis writing and research. After that we move to a historical fiction unit revolving around WWI. We deepen research and writing skills in this unit. We finish our year with a Holocaust unit where students choose a book based on the Holocaust.
