About the Course
During the first semester, students will read a variety of short stories and learn the process of literature analysis through a Christian worldview. The course will also take students through a step-by-step process of writing the academic essay. During the second semester, students will apply what they have learned by analyzing novels and writing analytical essays.
The goal of the course is to guide students in understanding the purpose, the importance, and the effect of Literature on our world and ourselves; learning how to analyze an author and his works through a Christian Worldview and to compare the author’s worldview with Scripture; learning what makes an effective composition and practice accomplishing the skill through the writing of a variety of essays; and appreciating the joy of reading through class discussion of Literature.
My name is Mrs. Erickson and I teach English, History, Creative Writing, and SAT/AP test prep. I was born and raised in Upstate NY and graduated from Houghton College with a BS in Christian Education. I also have a teaching certificate from the Evangelical Teacher Training Association in Christian Education. I have worked with all ages, from young children to adults, teaching Christian Education classes and tutoring students in Reading/English for 25+ years. I homeschooled my two boys in the Classical tradition throughout their schooling years and have taught in the classroom for about 12+ years. I have been married to my husband Mark for 28 years, and I am a grandmother to three grandchildren. I love to crochet, cross stitch, read, and spend time at home.
