English II

Expanding on the skills developed in English 1, this course develops students’ mastery of reading comprehension, analysis of complex texts, and vocabulary development. Students will write for a variety of purposes and audiences in the forms of informative/explanatory, argumentative, and narrative texts. Students will continue to build on their research skills, uses of standard English language grammar and conventions, and speaking and listening techniques. The central thematic focuses on this course are derived from diverse world literature that represent various global heritages and cultures, so that students increase their understanding of individual and cultural experiences. Substantial reading is required and outside reading and writing are expected.
