“We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.” (Martin Luther King Jr.). Eleventh grade literature will dive into this network of mutuality as we engage in several comparison studies. Students will learn to develop their own opinions through a strong writer’s voice. We will then delve into the world of rhetoric and put these analytical skills to work in our own argumentation.
