Students will be introduced to the elements of fiction, various literary genres and their cultural and historical contexts. They will practice using literary terms in interpreting a variety of texts across genre and mode, in writing and discussion. Students will be expected to analyze fiction critically in class discussions and through formal and informal writings.
