English III College Prep
English III focuses on selected genres from literature written by American authors, poets, historians, and politicians. Reading materials range from classic to modern American texts, as well as a variety of historical documents, speeches, and other informational texts. These texts serve as the basis for classroom discussion, critical and rhetorical writing tasks, and listening and speaking presentations. Students will be required to write several formal essays, including personal narratives, critical responses to literature, persuasive essays, research papers, and shorter timed writing tasks to prepare them for the SAT and college placement tests that they will take in the spring.
