Course Syllabus

Annotated Reading

Unpack the complex language of Shakespeare and learn how to analyze dramatic works. Acquire new vocabulary using context clues and apply your knowledge of new note-taking techniques.

Text Connections

Use fiction to make connections with the real world and other media; investigate how text translates into performance and video. Reflect on the impact of both types of plays and begin a formal analysis.

Analytical Writing

Write a comparative analysis between Shakespeare’s original play and modern-day live performances of his work. Integrate text-based evidence to support your argumentation.

Final Project

Write a remix of a classic Shakespeare play. Use script-writing strategies to develop modern characters and maintain the integrity of the original text. Deepen your narrative technique with the principle of “show, don’t tell,” and revise your story with an editing exercise.

What Are Our Lessons Like?

We offer on-demand videos to supplement your 1:1 sessions! You may need to refer to them for homework or to refresh your notes. Here are a couple of video clips from the curriculum for you to check out!

Having just finished up my freshman year, I am delighted to announce that English II was a breeze thanks to you. After taking all the different levels of Letterly, I gained the confidence to take the exam to skip a grade in English the very same year I took your classes. 

In school, I just read a passage and answer multiple choices ... at Letterly, we do more reading, annotating, and writing. We learn how to make it stronger using conjunctions, clauses, and more. We then learn how to use these methods in our writing.
