Course Title:  Perspectives in English

This class addresses the themes of adversity, conflict, and change through multiple perspectives using media, poetry, nonfiction, and fiction. Through text, discussion, and writing, we will address the central question, “How do we best understand our world through multiple perspectives?” Our focus will be on historical events as well as current social issues.
