Prerequisite: English 11
Academic English 12 builds on skills learned in Academic English 11. Students will study a variety of novelists, poets, and dramatists. Students in English 12 will be exposed to a detailed study of non-fiction, drama and poetry in the first half of the course. The second half of the course provides exposure to fictional narratives, from classic and modern literature, in the form of novels and short stories. In addition to reviewing the devices of rhetoric, students will be challenged through researching and critically analyzing literary works; group presentations and both written and oral commentaries are integral aspects to this course.
