English 12 focuses on the development of reading and writing skills designed to ensure that graduating seniors are well prepared for education at the college level. Students will read complex texts with sophisticated content which will challenge them to discover subtleties of meaning. Reading will cover a variety of historical and literary periods and will represent a wide range of styles. In addition to developing their analytical skills, the course will allow students to refine their writing through structured essays and personal reflections. Finally, students will be exposed to alternate texts in the form of films and visual representations.The new English 12 curriculum will be developed this summer (2013).
