Literary Interpretation

Catholic Homeschool High School Course

Literary Interpretation equips the student with the reading comprehension and writing skills necessary for upper high school and college level English work.

Interpretive essay writing is taught incrementally, beginning with the study of a sample essay. The first essay assignment has pre-written thesis and topic sentences to reinforce correct organization before students go on to write all of their own sentences in later assignments.

Advanced reading comprehension is taught by the study of complex works in a broad array of genres: novel, epic poem, poetry, and play. We especially emphasize works of literature written from a Catholic point of view, and students are brought to a deeper understanding of the Catholic view of reality and human nature.
