2024 - 2025 MCPS High School Course Bulletin

ENG2036B/ENG2036A IB English Literature 1B

0.5 credit per semester

In this first year of the course, students explore selected works of literature to appreciate the artistry of literature and to develop an ability to reflect critically on their reading. Works are studied in their literary and cultural contexts, through close study of individual texts and passages, and by considering a range of critical approaches. One of two papers for the external assessment is written, and oral assessments are completed for a portion of the IB score. All work is designed to prepare students for both the oral and written portions of the IB exams.
