Course Description:

In the first semester of English II, students will explore how literature is a dress-rehearsal for life. In Unit 1, students will critically read a variety of short story selections that mimic real-life experiences, discovering the ironies inherent in day-to-day life. Through the reading and interpretation of poetry in Unit 2, students will uncover the affect, both immediate and long-term, of life’s choices. Finally in Unit 3, students will encounter the challenges that life presents by reading a true-to-life memoir. The challenge for the student of this course is to notice the connections between life’s ironies, choices made, and the day-to-day challenges that we all face.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of these concepts through self-checks, quizzes, research, formal and informal writings, unit evaluations, and online discussions.
