In Junior Boarding School Literary Interpretations, students will learn how family expectations and religious values influence one’s personal identity. Students will also focus on how historical, social, and cultural context affect a text’s narrative, emphasizing how literary devices help to control theme(s). Since reading and writing are inextricably linked, students will learn to actively read the text at both the literal and inferential levels.
