Welcome to my online classroom!
CP ELA II: During the high school years, reading, writing, and speaking overlap as students deepen their study of language and literature and gain skills that help them in other subjects, such as science and history. Students intensify their study of vocabulary by interpreting what words imply and applying their knowledge of roots from Greek and latin to draw inferences about meaning. Students analyze and evaluate a wide variety of American, English and world nonfiction and literary texts. They study the important works and authors, poets, and playwrights of various historical periods and critique their works. High school students become good researchers and write or deliver increasingly sophisticated research reports and multimedia presentations. The ability to develop an idea and express it persuasively helps students create strong oral and written skills that they can use in college and the workplace.
Honors ELA II: The Honors English courses in literature and composition are geared to prepare students for rigorous coursework in both AP Literature and Composition and AP Language and Composition. Coursework will include summer reading assignments, as well as accelerated pacing in the areas of literary analysis, writing, speaking, listening, and information literacy.
