English 12 is a course designed to allow students the opportunity to read, interpret, and analyze various works the instructor has selected to demonstrate major concepts, themes, intellectual trends, and literary forms found throughout the course of British and World Literature. This course will be geared toward preparing students for the demands of college and will be more rigorous than that of a regular level English course. Students will study works from the very beginnings of English literature in the Anglo-Saxon era to the modern and post-modern works of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In addition to the study of English literary history, students will be required to complete a major research project and several technological based assignments including, but not limited to PowerPoint, Animoto, and Prezi. Throughout the year, students will complete several writing projects on a variety of subjects, including the research project and a personal experience essay for their college application. All activities and course work were chosen in order to prepare students for their university and college careers.
The course standards are aligned with the Alabama Course of Study English 2013.
Students must have Microsoft Office to access the course documents.
