Introduction to the DCE
In preparation for the Documented Critical Essay in senior year, juniors will study literary criticism: what it is, where to find it, and how to use it, which will prepare them for its use analyzing and writing about their novel choices next year. The project will culminate in an Annotated Bibliography with 8 sources.

All paperwork associated with the Intro to the DCE can be found here and must be printed out by students either when the student is absent from class (where the teacher will make every effort to distribute hard copies), or when indicated to do so by the teacher.

This is one of the most significant assignments of junior year and as such carries a large weight in the students' grade in the Writing Category. Additionally, in order to prepare juniors for the rigor of senior year, the calendar posted below includes details about the assignment which do not exist for most other assignments in the class and which can significantly affect a student's grade. Please read all paperwork thoroughly, come to class prepared, meet all deadlines, and give yourself a chance to do well on this assignment.

Literature: Modernism
Students MUST bring their books to class EACH DAY to avoid losing Speaking and Listening points.

Students will learn to annotate their texts in preparation for a variety of uses such as small group and whole class discussion as well as Socratic Seminars, which focus on a critical and analytical approach to reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Reading Rubrics should be attached to any reading/annotating assignment as indicated by the teacher.

Students will continue the study of the Modernist Period by reading Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

Students can find the calendar for the class attached below.
