NJ Course Code:

This semester course is designed to build empathy and introspection as we learn about ourselves by reading about others. In addition to reading the works of others, students will have the opportunity to pen several short personal memoirs that will be compiled into a final portfolio. This is a workshop class, meaning students will have many opportunities to share their insights on the readings, as well as to confer with peers and the teacher as they revise and edit their own writing.

Possible texts: The Meaning of Matthew, Why is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, When They Call You A Terrorist, The Glass Castle, and excerpts from several other works

*This course is eligible as a replacement for any one (1) semester of an English IV standard course for students who have thus far met all graduation requirements
