Welcome to Mr. Bandy’s English IV —

For the 2017-2018 school year, you will be learning about all British literature, from its influence by Ancient Greece and Rome, the Middle East and Asia, on through early, middle, and modern Britain.  Classics such as The Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, Shakespeare’s Macbeth, and Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will be read and discussed for their reflection of the British Era.

We will introduce British traditions both old and new, discuss the cultures of Anglo-Saxon, Medieval Europe, the Renaissance, and the Victorian and Romantic periods.Within this site there are separate sets of lessons for English IV and AP English IV. Resources such as online texts, novels, and assignments will be available as the year progresses.

This year, you will have a Senior Project, to be completed in the Spring, and various projects throughout the school year.

This page will be home for content related to your daily coursework. Vocabulary lists, discussion questions, audio-visual tools, and more will be available as needed. This will be your go-to location for missed work.

This year will be only as successful as your participation allows. Get involved in what we discuss, keep up with the daily and project assignments, and this should be a productive and enjoyable trip through British literature.
