ENG421/ENG422 - English 12
2 Semesters 1 Credit Fulfills: English


Through a year-long course dedicated to preparing students for  greater college and career readiness, English 12 is broken into two semesters with different primary emphasis. The first semester is primarily designed to prepare students for college and career writing. It will provide the technical writing skills necessary to communicate effectively. Major emphasis will be placed on writing to persuade, synthesize and analyze.  The second semester of the course will focus on developing the students’ ability to appreciate and process different forms of literature and writing. The reading portion of the course will focus on reading for students’ academic and personal futures. Some units will be teacher directed and focused on themes of identity and empathy. Other units will offer student choice and emphasize reading as a lifetime activity. All reading offers students the opportunity to reflect on their own beliefs in contrast with literary characters. As students work in their “book clubs” they will gain skills and practice in teamwork, responsibility and effective communication.
