Wuthering Heights and “Porphyria’s Lover”– 2 weeks
How does Bronte use language (style, tone, voice, diction, and syntax) to advance her theme and characterization?
During this time, students will be completing their e-portfolios for the graduation project. At home, they will read Wuthering Heights and keep a reader’s journal.
Students will demonstrate an understanding of characterization, irony, diction, unreliable narrator, tone, syntax, voice, Marxist and Formalist literary theory, write a timed prose response on Wuthering Heights from a released AP Lit exam, and conduct a Socratic seminar on the novel.
