Level four is organized into five units centered on the theme of coming of age. We will study challenging texts including the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee and a play by William Shakespeare. In addition, we will analyze short stories, poetry, and media such as film, art, music, and photography. Each unit contains two embedded assessments, a unit exam, a writing workshop, and a wide-range of reading and writing activities designed to prepare students for college and for the 21st century.
