每7天周期6次会议/3学分. Required for seniors.
English 12 divides into two parts: a two-trimester literature course and a one trimester exploration of good writing in a variety of subject areas and modes.两到三个月的文学课程
选择美国文学, British literature, 非洲文学, India, 加勒比海用英语, 和世界文学的英语和翻译, each of Hackley’s three twelfth-grade literature courses comprises a two-trimester unit introducing students to collegiate-level work in exploring and writing about literature, culture, and theory.
而每一门课程都提供了独特的文本选择, themes, 和关键的角度, all courses serve to develop students’ skills as readers of many types of “texts”: literature, journalism, film, theatre, advertisements, and the visual arts.
In addition, students will develop their skills both as writers and thinkers through class presentations, group projects, 以及各种体裁的写作任务.
Students will come to appreciate that the Anglo-American literary tradition is not the only viable tradition; that the Anglo-American tradition has complexities they have not yet encountered; that a historical approach must not look purely at the center of a literary domain, but must also look at its borders on the margins of the text; that there are no “theory-free” readings of texts or cultures; that all language is political and that even the “plain style” has an agenda; that the politics of “othering” limits our perceptions; that we must step out of and look critically at the center of society; and that we have much to learn from the range of critical theories open to us – including but not limited to historicism, new criticism, feminism, Marxism, deconstruction, new historicism, cultural materialism, queer theory, post-colonial theory, social-spatial理论, etc.
学生将进行课堂演讲, group projects, 以及各种体裁的写作任务, 在第二个学期有一个重要的写作项目(但没有考试).
在妊娠晚期, 学生将与他们的英语老师和时间表, but they will start a new course exploring reading and writing on various subjects and the writing skills and forms common to those subjects.
Our goal is for students to develop their facility at flexibly applying their skills to any kind of writing--both in terms of content and in terms of form. Each section will select several subject areas in which students would like to read and about which they would like to write.
可能的科目包括:体育, food, music, film, theatre, visual arts, technology, environment, social-justice, political opinion, social commentary, 和course-literature.
Students will explore and write essays on those topics in 1) position papers such as op-ed pieces, sports commentaries, etc.; 2) reviews such as book-, film-, and architecture-reviews; 3) creative nonfiction pieces including such forms as traditional essays, lyric essays, and poetry; and 4) for those who choose traditional analytical essays.
学生还将探讨如何在公开演讲中翻译这些词汇. 学生不仅会读和写, 但他们会写同龄人的作品, 用元认知的方式写出他们自己的写作, 并参与学生作品的写作工作坊.
