high school level

I was consulting with a homeschool parent about the age-old question, "How do you know it's high school level?"  She asked me how to tell whether "Movies as Literature" was a high school course.   The more we talked about it, the more confident she became.  Meanwhile, I was getting more and more excited about the curriculum she was asking about. Learning literature through watching movies??? How cool is that?!

When I looked it up online, I noticed that the description of the  curriculum answered her question with ease. It says, "This complete, one-year high school English course uses classic movies on video to introduce and study the elements of literary analysis." That's the easy way to tell if it is high school level - it tells you! And that's the easy way to tell if it is a whole credit (whole year) course - it tells you!
