Gothic Literature

0.5 Unit
English Language Arts
Grades: 9, 10, 11, 12

This one-semester course has 14 lessons, plus five Course Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities. It explores different conventions, themes, and elements of Gothic literature through the analysis of representative literary works, such as Emily DickinsonÕs poems about mortality and spirituality, Robert Louis StevensonÕs classic Gothic novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Edgar Allan PoeÕs Gothic short stories, Bram StokerÕs Dracula, Robert BrowningÕs Gothic poems, Percy Bysshe ShelleyÕs Gothic drama, The Cenci, Mary ShelleyÕs classic Gothic novel, Frankenstein, Gothic parodies and Gothic subgenres, and modern Gothic literature.
You will submit the Course Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the Lesson Activities by comparing them with sample responses. The Course Activities (submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that feature along with the lesson and an end-of-semester test. These mastery test questions are a combination of simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
