Course Details

Honors English II (222)

More rigorous than English II, this course encourages students to take risks with their thinking and writing as they study works from all genres - short story, novel, drama, and poetry. In addition, students engage in daily grammar practice and continue to learn new vocabulary. This Honors course also includes an introduction to the rudiments of classical rhetoric and debate, through which they will get a glimpse of the AP Language course offered junior year. In addition to core reading selections for all sophomores, including Oedipus, Antigone, Macbeth, and A Tale of Two Cities, students analyze speeches and satire and a wide variety of poetry and prose.
