This course for students who want an advanced program in English uses the works of major American writers such as Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, Morrison, and Tan as the source of studying composition and literature as well as American thought, culture, and values. As a required course, it includes a particular emphasis on instruction in reading and writing. Enrollment in this course requires meeting prerequisites of performance and the recommendation of a former or current Gunn English teacher; this allows students to earn “weighted” grading.
