PART-TIME POSITION: 9th grade English/Literature (3 classes)

Class Description:

Ninth grade English at Coram Deo Academy builds on the Greek mythology introduced in eighth grade with a study of the plays of the three famous Greek tragedians, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides.  This is followed by an examination of the lives and works of Greek philosophers Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle and the reading of The Apology of Socrates and Aristotle’s Poetics.  Students not only read and analyze Poetics, the first guide to literary criticism, but apply Aristotle’s principles to contemporary works in individual presentations.  Next, the students begin their study of famous Roman poets by reading Virgil’s The Aeneid and a piece from Ovid’s Metamorphosis. Students study Hellenistic letter writing through Paul’s epistles Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians.  They complete the year with the reading of Confessions by Augustine, Beowulf, and Norse mythology. Ninth grade composition covers the steps of the Progymnasmata through written and oral presentation. Students also complete a research paper related to Classical or Early Church history implementing the MLA format and in-text citing used throughout the Upper School and at most universities.
