Program Overview

Program Description:
Why Study English On Location? English has forever been a fluid yet hybrid language, and the colliding and coalescing of both French and English languages and cultures not only provided new words, but new ideas and ways of perceiving the world. Imagine exploring the playgrounds of literary giants beginning in Paris and moving north all the way to Edinburgh. The rich cultures of Paris and London are the ideal cities in which to consider the influence of art and literature on Western culture. Dynamic learning experiences, such as attending a Shakespearean play at the Globe Theatre, will bring the coursework alive. Moving up through the Lake District and into Scotland we will also have the opportunity to venture into one of Europe's most attractive and lively cities - Edinburgh. Examining contemporary Scottish writers will give students the opportunity to study the transformation of provincial England into the diverse chorus of voices that are its modern reality.

English, Grade 12. The core English course will focus on the refinement of literacy, communication and analytical skills. Students will build on their understanding of academic language and practice using it coherently and confidently in discussion and argument in both oral and written forms. Literary forms examined will include plays, poems, short stories, essays and the novel, while themes studied will coordinate with the locations in which we reside. Studies in Literature, Grade 12. This course is intended for students who are passionate about literature and literary criticism.
