Literature & Composition for High School (23.0610; 23.0620)

When is this class offered?

Teacher: Barbara Maples




Pick a country … any country! Nothing is more fun than going wherever you want to go when you want to go – we will be doing just that in our Literary Types Literature Class this year. We will be traveling the world with our favorite authors and studying various types of literature from American authors to Shakespeare and Confucius, to Dumas and Shell Whatz-is-name … oh, and The Cat in the Hat! We will also have a real, live, visiting published author this year whose books have been on the Amazon Top 100 Books!

Bring your reading passport! Hope you can join us!



The teacher supplies textbooks and other classroom materials out of the Materials fee. These are purchased at the best possible value. Students are encouraged to keep their books at the end of each semester to start building their own personal library.

All Literature books are chosen from the Georgia Department of Education list of books for high school graduation and college-bound students. Great consideration is taken when making choices for my students.
