ENGLISH 12: Grade 12 continues to refine students’ ability and desire to learn and communicate about language and literature. Literature instruction focuses on opportunities to apply appropriate reading skills and strategies; respond critically, reflectively, and imaginatively to the literature of outstanding world writers and develop vocabulary. The Composition component of English 12 continues to provide students with opportunities to hone their writing. Using technology, students are able to produce polished final documents. Students are also able to complete complex forms, describe procedures, give directions, and use graphic forms to support a thesis. Oral Communication (speech) continues to emphasize the organization of ideas, awareness of audience, and sensitivity to context in carefully researched and well-organized speeches. Class members will have reading and writing experiences they need for all college courses plus advantageous English course placement in college.
