Course Description:

The first semester of English 3 offers students a wide sampling of American voices from major time periods in America’s history. Through reading historical documents, letters, journals, speeches, poetry, songs, short fiction, drama, novels, and expository pieces, students will explore three units: Voices of War, Voices of Purpose, and American Voices. In each unit, students will be provided opportunities to demonstrate skills related to research, writing for various purposes and audiences, critical thinking, critical reading strategies, responding to literature, the writing process, and revising and editing.

The novel options for this course, A Lesson before Dying or Monster , will enrich your understanding of the unheard voices of America that are often overlooked.
