In this episode you’ll listen to lesson 1 of the 11th grade English course of the Ron Paul Curriculum. This Western Literature II course is taught by Dr. Gary North.
This course covers Western literature from the Reformation to modern times. It is designed to be complementary to the course on the history of Western civilization, also from the Reformation to modern times. Both courses begin in 1493.
11th Grade English Course Overview
The literature selected illustrates the fundamental religious, philosophical, moral, and in some cases political outlook of each geographical region and each time period.
When this course is completed, students will have the ability to understand why a particular region had a particular kind of literature written by a particular author. Students will have answers to those crucial five questions: “who, what, where, when, and why?” This will apply both to the student’s understanding of history and literature.
In this 36-week course, students complete daily reading assignments and watch a video commentary on Monday through Thursday. Friday’s video will review the previous four lessons. The student will be expected to write a short essay on Friday about the main topic of the week.
