Elijah Dean's Transcript ~ English III

Elijah's third year of high school English focused on authors who he really liked through his earlier years of education. We explored some of their writings that he had never read and learned more about their lives. He either read some himself or heard books read aloud through family read aloud time and then discussed essay questions. He also watched several movies that are based on literature. Lastly, he did several grammar, vocabulary and critical thinking workbooks. Below are the books, movies and workbooks that he completed.
