Welcome to Structure in Language and Literature II – the sophomore English course. In this class, we cover a wide range of authors from the very old (Sophocles – published over 2,000 years ago) to the modern (The Things They Carried, a novel about Vietnam). We cover many different types of writing, as we read four novels covering the 19th and 20th centuries, two novellas, one short story unit, two plays – one classical and one recent – and an extensive poetry unit. For more information, see our Course Description
On this site, you will find the documents that we will use in class – homework and grammar sheets, our biweekly syllabi, and the poems that we will use in class. If you ever lose your work, or if you need to study for a quiz and no longer have the original sheet, you can find them all here.
Please keep in mind that the uploaded course syllabi are subject to change, and the ones posted here are sometimes slightly inaccurate once our class is actually underway.
