English III Honors

English III Honors is a college preparatory survey course that covers the rich British Literary Tradition in a chronological manner, and supplements those readings with relevant, rigorous nonfiction selections.  Students will read, analyze, respond to, and discuss topics in literature and nonfiction as they prepare to take the PARCC and SAT. In addition to consistently working to improve the essay format, students will have the opportunity to sharpen their critical thinking, improve their vocabulary, and hone their writing skills.  All work is aligned to national Common Core reading, writing, speaking & listening, and language standards
