This class covers not only one of the most popular and influential books of the past millennium, but also delves into its source material, introducing the student to the ancient epics, Beowulf, the stories of King Arthur, poetry scansion, linguistics, and much more. Covers 130 literary terms and 600 vocabulary words. In the class time, grammar and punctuation will be reviewed briefly, but will not be covered in depth. Writing instruction and assignments will be given and graded by the instructor. Test and quizzes will also be given and graded and a grade for the course will be issued.
