Welcome to English IV AD, H, AP
Prerequisite: English III
Students enrolled in English IV continue to increase and refine their reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing and representing communication skills. Students edit their papers for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English and produce final, error-free drafts. Students compile information from primary and secondary sources and represent this research in a variety of ways. Students read extensively in multiple genres from British literature and other world literature, including classical and contemporary works. In English IV, students are expected to write in a variety of forms, including business, personal, literary, and persuasive texts. Students learn literary forms and terms associated with selections being read and interpret historical influences on the literary work.
