English 2 builds upon the skills learned during the freshman year. Students expand their study of a wide range of multi-genre fiction and non-fiction. Continued emphasis is placed on developing writing, reading, speaking, listening, and critical thinking skills. Students compose complex thesis-driven essays and deeply engage in the research process.
Honors credit is given to students who fulfill the honors criteria outlined by teachers at the beginning of each unit. To earn honors for the semester, students must complete all of the honors work in that given semester.
Note: summer reading requirement for this course will be announced in the spring via the Carondelet website.
