This is a rigorous eleventh-grade English course in which students will study American literature. They will be studying selections from <i>The Crucible</i>, reading the novel <i>To Kill a Mockingbird</i>, writing a research book report, and completing writing assignments that contrast historical and fictitious events described in literature. Students will also be studying Latin and Greek terms, developing their vocabulary, and enhancing their writing skills. This is the first course in a two-part Eleventh-Grade English series (ENGL 051 and ENGL 053). This course also encompasses Common Core content.
The Crucible and To Kill a Mockingbird may be available at a local library or bookstore.
