English III

In English 3, students read and analyze American literature from a variety of historical, political and cultural perspectives.  These literary works include both non-fiction (journals, expository articles, speeches) and fiction (poetry, novels, drama).  Students are encouraged to make connections between literature and history while continuing to refine and practice their skills writing argumentative, informative/explanatory, and narrative compositions. Students also learn to formulate an argument, research information, assess the relevance and credibility of a source, cite a variety of sources and format a document.  In both oral presentations and written work, students demonstrate their ability to appeal to their audience logically, ethically and emotionally.  Outside reading and writing assignments further develop students’ vocabulary and critical thinking.
