DP English A HL

IB HL World Literature is primarily a pre-university course in literature aimed at students who intend to pursue literature, or related studies, at university. This course introduces students to the analysis of literary texts. The course is organized into four parts, each focused on a group of literary works. Together, the four parts of the course add up to a comprehensive exploration of literature from a variety of cultures, genres and periods. Students learn to appreciate the artistry of literature, and develop the ability to reflect critically on their reading, presenting literary analysis powerfully through both oral and written communication.
