Course Description

This course integrates the study of writing, grammar and usage, world literature, and also speaking and listening. We will explore the process of writing by planning, drafting, revising, editing and proofreading. Students will develop grammar usage skills through daily grammar practice and in the context of writing.

We will study texts from a great number of ancient and contemporary world cultures, including those of Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North and South America. Students will read a variety of literature, including poetry, short stories, essays, nonfiction, and examples of culturally sacred/mythic texts.

The course places great emphasis on writing, including informative/explanatory, narrative, and argumentative essays. English II is an EOC course, so at the end of the semester, students will take the state of North Carolina’s End-of-Course test.

As you know, English II is a requirement for graduation. Our English II classrooms are heterogeneous, or classrooms in which honors and academic students are taught together. As a part of this arrangement, students will receive differentiated instruction appropriate to the course they are taking. So, while all students will be held to high standards and will have the same overall learning objectives, at times they will be given different activities and assignments to practice these objectives and to demonstrate their mastery of learning. Please note: standards will not be lowered for honors-level students, and academic-level students will not be given honors-level work unless they are also provided the extra support and guidance appropriate for an academic class. Rather, each student will be provided with activities, tools, and strategies specific to their level in hopes of helping all students master the Common Core State Standards.
