The Senior Thesis

Each year Mr. Gorey’s AP Literature class goes on a literary journey, exploring their interests in the form of an extended research project. Every student chooses a topic,¬†creates a question about it, and reads a minimum of three works of literature about that essential question. This is a process that includes a trip to the library at Bowdoin for special research. Some of the topics this year included a look at drug use during the Beat Generation, the reality of the American Dream, why Superheroes and Survival narratives are so loved in society, and can Young Adult novels¬†be considered literature. If you want to read any of these essays or learn more about the project see Mr. Gorey!
