English IV 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 IV students are expected to write in a variety of forms, including business, personal, literary, and persuasive texts. English IV students read from multiple genres including British literature, and other works of world literature. Periods from British literature may include old English period, medieval and English renaissance, 17th century, 18th century, romantic period, Victorian period, modern, and postmodern period.
