English III Honors

Course ID: 1028

There will be three major components to this upper level English class. The first focus will be literature. The students will read a total of five novels during the year (3 classics and 2 contemporary). Each week they will engage in a Socratic discussion of the reading from the past week. The second focus will be building upon the writing skills they already have. During the first six weeks, the students will work on a personal narrative. It can also serve as an excellent essay to use on most college applications. They will continue to write essays all year (averaging about one essay a month). The final component is SAT preparation. The students will have SAT vocabulary quizzes each week. Each week in class the students will work on SAT grammar practice problems.
