    English IV is a course embedded in World Literature. It is a broad spectrum English course incorporating grammar, research, and writing taught through the lens of great world literature. 



    All rules in the Student Code of Conduct are followed in my class. I have special distaste for cheating, as I am here to help students improve, and cheating disallows me to know where a student needs help. Thus, cheating will yield zeroes and may result in further action.

     

    Texts:

    The main text for English IV is Mirrors and Windows: World Literature. Outside readings include Frankenstein and The Count of Monte Cristo.

     

    Word Lists:
