English 11

Students will understand the thematic progression of literature from the United States by studying literary texts across the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. They will analyze and explain authors’ use of literary techniques through argumentative essays, discussions, and oral presentations. Students will flexibly use technology for both research and the presentation of information.   

English 12

Students will engage in the study of literary movements in order to determine how various views affect the interpretation and understanding of literature, including pieces of world literature. They will also understand how works of literature are influenced by historical context. Students will participate in independent inquiry in which they reflect upon how their own choices and actions affect how they are perceived in the world as well as how they are influenced by the time period in which they live. Students will initiate inquiry, research, and present their findings in writing and as a formal presentation.    Supply List for English 11 and 12
