    E07: Modern & Contemporary Literature

    What does it mean to be modern? Are we all alone? How important is culture? Why is there always war? Is the world falling apart? What makes someone feel superior? When is life most precious? Should we fear change? How much grief can one endure? How can words deceive? How can a crisis unite us?

    In this unit, students consider these guiding questions with a focus on Modern and Contemporary British Literature from 1901 – the present.

    E06: Victorians

    How do we measure progress?  When is progress a problem?  Can values be imposed?  Is it better to escape or face reality?  Why do people fear change?

    In this unit, students consider these guiding questions with a focus on the Victorians and the period of British Literature from 1832-1901.  This unit culminates in an essay which uses evidence from a text to answer one of the guiding questions or a topic selected by the teacher.
