Recommended for Grade 10 Honors
Multicultural Literature Honors focuses on introducing learners to a variety of texts by and about people of diverse ethnic backgrounds. You will explore cultural diversity by comparing, contrasting and analyzing some amazing stories. Learners will use the readings in this course to build vital writing and critical thinking skills. There are so many different voices out there to hear, and this class offers the chance to celebrate the richness of multicultural literature. The honors course requires learners to read and create a multimedia presentation on one extra novel of their choice, based on a list of texts provided in the class. In this project, learners get the chance to use the skills they’ve learned in the class to share their analysis of a novel they have read and enjoyed independently. Our ultimate goal is TO LEARN A LOT and HAVE FUN!
*This course is approved for UC/CSU “b” Honors credit.
