Description: Elements of Literature from BJU teaches students how to analyze literature from a biblical perspective and encourages critical thinking skills through a collection of classic works in many genres and from many cultures and countries. The educational material emphasizes the literary elements that define lasting artistic literature. It also emphasizes the worldviews presented in an author’s writing in order to train students to exercise biblically-based moral discernment
Grammatical concepts will be studied and implemented in the students’ writing throughout the year. The students will study how to write properly structured sentences and paragraphs then demonstrate their proficiency by writing a five paragraph essay.
The study of literary fundamentals will be reinforced through the reading and discussion of the novels Crispin: The Lead Cross and Frankenstein. Please note that in order to make class discussion easier, the instructor will purchase the same edition of
each novel for the students. The cost of the two novels is included in the material fees.
