English 11 focuses on the reasons for reading and writing in contemporary society. Through a survey of American literature, we study texts in light of contemporary issues and realities. We practice our skills in research and writing, in thinking and discussion. Students continue to refine the writing and research skills necessary for a yearlong, inquiry-based research process that will result in an informative research paper and a persuasive presentation. Grammar exercises, vocabulary lessons, and timed writings are designed for SAT preparation.
