Early College Online is a program offered in partnership with VLACS and the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), offering high school students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit for taking online college-level courses taught by CCSNH faculty.

This course delves into the reading and analyzing of literary works in order to develop an appreciation for the place literature has in its influence on culture and society. Selections will be taken from four literary genres: Poetry, drama, the novel, and the short story. By becoming familiar with and applying key literary terms and various approaches to literary criticism to reading, students will be able to hone their abilities to write in an analytical manner while engaging with primary and secondary sources.
