Advanced English 11:
We will focus on American Literature in this course, but the emphasis throughout the year will be the upcoming Reading and Writing SOL students will take this year. Students will need the following materials: Sticky notes, three-ring binder with paper, composition book, blue/black pen, pencils. Students will be using their Literature Books, and outside reading will include, but not be limited to the following novels: The Education of Little Tree, Mary Crow Dog Lakota Woman, The Constitution, Fredrick Douglas, The Color of Water, and The Grapes of Wrath. You may purchase these books, but it is not required. I have found several at Madison Heights, Goodwill.
Advanced English 11 will require students to read and work independently. We will come together to analyze, discuss, and participate in activities with the materials they read on their own. Students will also be required to be strong , independent writers as well. I will be happy to give extra help during remediation and at other times, but students need to let me know they are struggling!
Students should stay on top of homework, and be self motivated.
English 12 Students will be studying British Literature with an emphasis on communication. Students will need: Sticky Notes, Composition Book, Three Ring Binder, Blue/Black Ink Pen, Pencils, and loose leaf Paper.
