The first round of English Literacy has been focusing on the American History. Every week we read a new excerpt relating to different historical events such as The Great Depression, The Cause of American Civil War, the Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death speech, etc. All the excerpts were printed on paper, and attached to them are comprehension-check questions. In class, we discussed in detail, read external sources, and explored vocabulary relating to the excerpt.
I personally feel that in addition to gaining new knowledge, this unit has really enhanced my reading skill for the upcoming SAT.
