English 4 is designed to help students continue to develop and refine the skills they have acquired throughout the high school language arts program. Students will read classic and contemporary works of world literature, including novels, short stories, poetry, and drama. In preparation for college studies, there is a particular emphasis on nonfiction.
In this course students are required to write longer essays including deep literary analyses, synthesis essays, and a lengthy research paper. In lieu of a final exam, students will develop final projects that allow them to reflect on their personal and academic journeys throughout high school.
