Prerequisite:  Students must have earned credit for English 10 or English 10 Honors


In English 11 students utilize literature of various genres and periods to explore "The American Dream," and other goal-oriented human behavior. In addition to core curricular texts such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Great Gatsby, Macbeth, and Their Eyes Were Watching God, students choose among a selection of book-length texts that center on a character's "coming of age" and pursuing his/her dreams. English 11 provides students the opportunity to follow their higher education and vocational interests, and to utilize and hone their knowledge of argumentation through a variety of writing tasks: research, personal narrative, comparative analyses of fiction and non-fiction, etc.  Students are assessed through a number of means including both formal and informal essays, authentic student-led discussions and individual and group oral presentations.
