Course Overview
This skill based course will provide the student with the skill set needed for them to ace literary analysis and its critical commentary essay. The course will follow a modular approach- covering literary analysis techniques, followed by guided technique and skill practices on a wide variety of literary texts. Next literary techniques, analysis and essay writing will be modelled in tandem, using literary texts and real exam questions from the students curriculum. The student will be taught how to ensure that their essays reflect their analysis, thus meeting their curriculum criterions.

A wide variety of key literary texts will be used, including prose, poetry and drama such as Shakespeare, poetry from Sylvia Plath and novels such as The Great Gatsby. The student will also be able to use their individual school set texts, although no single text will be covered in depth.

At the end of the course the student:

  • will be able to annotate, evaluate and analyse the effect of literary devices, structure and techniques in a variety of literary text types. They also will be able to use contextual understanding to examine and interpret texts and how text conventions across genres, cultures and time periods influence texts.
  • will be able to write critical commentary on unseen prose and poetry, ensuring it is presented in a logical manner. They will also be able to ensure that their analysis is reflected clearly by picking relevant details, quotes and using focused elaboration to develop analysis to produce a cohesive essay, while meeting the students curriculum criterions.
  • will be able to comprehend the requirements and rubric for various coursework such as critical essays, oral and empathetic responses to various texts- enabling them to meet their curriculum criterions.
