Good morning year twelve English and Mrs Broadway, Our cohort is nearing the end of its secondary education and therefore it is important that we reflect on the ways in which it has shaped our attitudes, values and beliefs. For example, over the past five years, we have read, analysed and evaluated various literary works such as novels, plays, poems and films in our English studies. These texts have expressed various ideologies, explored interesting themes and introduced us to fascinating characters. These elements have left a lasting impression on our attitudes, values and beliefs. In addition to this, English literary texts have provided us with historical knowledge as well as a thorough understanding of the role that aesthetic devices

“One Writer’s Beginnings” From Belle in Beauty and the Beast to Matilda, bookworms come in many ages and eras. No matter what struggles bookworms face, these people share a common passionate love for reading much like author Eudora Welty did in her childhood. In an excerpt from her autobiography, Welty describes her childhood experiences at home and at a library that later impacted her as an author. To convey the value and intensity of her experiences with literature, Welty uses imagery, diction, and an anecdote.

Research Goal During the undergraduate career many english major’s will encounter a course in which they focus on a specific time period of literature. English 317: British Literature 1500-1700 is one such course. English 317 is designed to allow students the freedom and flexibility to identify and formulate questions for productive inquiry, to evaluate sources for credibility, bias, quality of evidence, and quality of reasoning, and to use citation methods and structures appropriate to their field of study (UWP English Department). These course goals identical to the UW English Department’s Research goal. It is because this course focuses on a time period in which no living being is yet alive to have personally experienced it, that a heavy amount of research is required. The paper “The Witch of Edmonton: Revisited” from English 317, demonstrates how I have learned
Roy Conli once said “When you're telling a story, the best stories, every character has an arc. Every one. And that arc is usually about finding yourself, or about at least finding something about yourself that you didn't know.” This is a prevalent theme in many examples of Young Adult Literature (YAL or YA). Three books that demonstrate the critical transformation between childhood and adulthood by exploring difficult social issues, finding personal identity, and letting go are a Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, and Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
This essay originally titled Studying Literature in Grade 12, has an abundance of information regarding and convincing the readers that the grade twelve English course should be composed of Canadian literature. The grammar in this essay however, was weak. The subject did not agree to their pronouns, making many sentences awkward. Overall, improvements could have been made. Some of these include MLA format, the title, introduction paragraph, grammar, punctuation and the citation format.
Several works of literature have withstood the stand of time to be present with us today. Literature is not simply words sitting on a page, but words that have meaning and purpose. We can learn important lessons from literature. One specific person literature has made famous through her poetry and speeches is Queen Elizabeth I; for example, “Speech to the Troops at Tilbury” showed her love and bravery for her country. Queen Elizabeth I ruled England with dignity, strength, and loyalty, leaving her mark through her works in the literary world.
Earlier this year I was assigned the “Timeless Literature Project.” I went straight to my mom and asked what book she recommended I read, she told me to read Lord of the Flies. Now that I've read it and spoken to her many times about the book, I’d like to share some thoughts that we generated in our final discussion. We spoke about how the Cold War was a major influence in my mom’s life and how she thought that the book was set in that time. I talked about how I could relate Ralph’s losing of innocence. We both agreed that this story can be applied in areas of today's culture such as my mother’s pre-school class, the turmoil in the middle east, or even Langston Hughes Middle School. The overarching question we had was if all of this anarchy,
In this week’s reading, there were varying topics, but they were all under one category, which was traditional children’s literature. In the book many topics are discussed which include, what it means for a book to be traditional literature, how traditional literature has changed over time, the categories in which the different books can fall under, the different cultures and countries that the stories come from, the elements within traditional literature, and lastly the hero circle. There were also several articles that I read this week. One of the articles was about Goldilocks in multicultural elementary schools, two articles were about fractured fairy tales, and the last was about children’s folktales and diversity. The last readings this week were books that were either traditional literature or fractured fairy tales. Some of the books I choose, involved Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks, Paul Bunyan, The Three Billy Goats Guff and The Three Ninja Pigs.
Question #1: The poem was written by Lord Byron, the form of the poem is ottava rima. Specifically this rhyming stanza is usually used when discussing heroes; this was something that Lord Byron did. It consists of eight iambic lines, usually iambic pentameters. The poem was written as a response to Robert Southey’s A Vision of Judgment. Much of what we read in the first half of this class was based on satirical works, and this poem is no different as it is a satirical work as well. It is typical of Lord Byron because he usually writes a lot of hero poems, after all he does have the name Byronic hero.
