Senior Contemporary Literature is a yearlong course designed primarily for seniors who plan to continue their studies in an academic or career pathway. The course objective is to expose students with the impact of global authors on literary scope and achievement. Independent as well as guided reading of selected works of contemporary World Literature is analyzed and discussed. In addition, current articles inclusive of vocabulary and subject matter geared toward building an awareness of the issues and themes of authors in the 21st Century are considered. Oral communication, written response and interpretation of the readings will be the main form of assessment.
