English 12 (Honors) builds on the concepts and skills learned in Honors English 11. Students read classical, modern, and contemporary contributions to world literature. They read and write intensively in order to hone skills for analysis and synthesis of literary concepts. Participation in both small and large group discussion is expected, as students work together to make meaning of challenging texts. Prerequisite: A minimum final grade of "B” in English 11 (Honors) or "A” in English 11 (Academic) and teacher recommendation.
