English IV

Published on 8/25/2017

The objective for students enrolled in English IV is two-fold.  Students will be exposed to a wide range of literature from the British canon while focusing on devices such as the structure of a story, historical context, figurative language, poetic forms, and more.  Emphasis will be placed on close reading for comprehension and analysis, vocabulary study involving both denotative and connotative meanings, syntax and usage, and independent reading. Students will cover a variety of composition styles including expository, analytical short answer responses, literary analysis, and formal research essays.  Additionally, students in English IV will be given ample opportunities to utilize their writing skills for college and career exploration and planning.  Writing activities will include personal responses to a variety of college essay, scholarship and interview prompts, as well as the basics of resume and cover letter writing.  Students will also use their research and presentation skills to explore career paths and set future goals.
