11th Grade Collection includes:
1. Literature and Writing: Level 4 British Literature
When it comes to language arts, much of the exceptional work that your students will accomplish is subjective in nature tied to their ideas. As we value these ideas—their discoveries from reading tied to their observations—and challenge them to catalog and craft these ideas over time, students will rise into the work of literary analysis with vim and vigor. This collection includes six novels that represent an exploration of Brittish Literature and six student journals:
- All Creatures Great and Small, James Herriot
- Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen
- Angela’s Ashes, Frank McCourt
- Howl’s Moving Castle, Diana Wynne Jones
- Lord of the Flies, William Golding
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mark Hadon
Each week, this core offering follows a similar weekly format with ample room for students to catalog their observations of characters, themes, symbols, and motifs. and bring shape to their ideas. They will catalog rich vocabulary unique to the story, and gather quotes that exemplify themes. At the high school level, students craft a weekly synopsis and personal reflection of that week’s reading. For the culminating assignment, students are offered a wide range of directives to choose from, and are supported with a scaffolding upon which to craft their essay.

2. Operation Lexicon 11: William Shakespeare
A lexicon is the collected vocabulary of a person. Over the course of 26 weeks, students will explore a cluster of words from the lexicon of William Shakespeare. Using these words in an original way, with inspiration from favorites such as The Tempest, and Taming of the Shrew, will help the budding wordsmith recognize the plasticity of language and delight in its beauty.
