English II (2nd Edition)
English II continues to increase and refine communication skills. Students are expected to plan, draft, and complete written compositions. They will edit their papers for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English and produce final, error-free drafts. In English II students practice all forms of writing such as logical arguments, expressions of opinion, and personal forms of writing. These personal forms of writing may include a response to literature, a reflective essay, or an autobiographical narrative. English II students read from multiple genres including world literature, novels, poetry, and dramas. Students interpret the possible influences of the historical context on literary work.
