ENG 4U: What to Expect

The purpose of this course is to make you a better communicator. We will closely examine the methods through which great communicators like Shakespeare convey emotion, thought, and action; we will often use their work as inspiration for our own.  Because we need to prepare you for the post-secondary world, we will also consider the sort of communication that occurs in university and college. 

Below is a list of the tentative assignments that will be formally evaluated. Please note that they do not include regular writing tasks designed to help you communicate more effectively.

  1. introductions (a series of three, one based on your future area of study)
  2. blogs (instead of journals)
  3. novel seminar
  4. Lit Crit Hamlet
  5. notes for essay (based on the comparative essay)
  6. Poetry press conference
  7.  Glass Menagerie Tutorial
  8. comparative essay on two novels
  9. walkabout CA (Anne’s, connected to essay)
