English 12 is a yearlong required course that will enable students to become skilled readers of a wide range of literature and nonfiction. Students are expected to read and respond to these varieties independently, in group discussion and in writing. All facets of language arts - listening, speaking, reading, writing will be covered. The study of language in use – grammar, mechanics, sentence structure, and usage will be incorporated in this yearlong course as well. In addition to the above, we will work to improve and obtain ACT and WorkKeys test taking strategies.
