Course Description

Relevancy is a literature driven course. The course is designed to help students make meaningful connections between classic literature and the world in which we live. The novels we will be reading are as follows: Frankenstein, 1984, and Dracula. In addition, we will read selected nonfiction articles and poetry that relate to the core novels.
