English 2H is a literature-based course that focuses on fiction, drama, and writing. Students read closely, participate in class discussions, make prepared presentations, and write essays. Students focus their reading on literary patterns such as Joseph Campbell’s “A Hero’s Journey” and examine major themes found in novels such as Lord of the Flies, Siddhartha, and A Separate Peace. The class is conducted much like a college class, and as such, it is important that students are self-motivated and responsible.
