Unit Description

This unit explores the ways in which literature historically and presently shapes and reflects society. It explores the formation and attributes of a Christian worldview and how these compare and contrast with other dominant worldviews. It encourages students to engage with texts through the reading of short stories and poems and a chosen classic novel. Students explore the different facets of literary analysis: mood, matter, style, plot, use of metaphor, point of view, and archetypes as literary devices/forms. The influence of worldview and context on the composition and interpretation of a literary text is discussed and how a Christian worldview can be outworked. Students are given instruction on, and are required to demonstrate, the fundamentals and conventions of good academic writing.
