Literature: The purpose of this course is to focus on the elements of the novel.
We will be reading several novels and examining how each author constructs meaning in his/her writing and analyzing the content of the author’s message and purpose. We will also be examining the historical context of each novel and how the philosophies and events of an era are reflected in the text.
Writing: Students will be responsible for writing several analytical papers, several creative papers, and a variety of journal responses. We will be using the writing process for all major papers; this process includes prewriting, outlining, drafting, and editing. We will also be working on on-demand assignments, in preparation for the SAT.
Vocabulary: The vocabulary program for Honors Sophomore English is designed to improve the student’s ability to articulate and understand ideas. It is also designed to familiarize students with the types of questions and words used on the SAT.
Grammar: There will be two approaches to the study of grammar this year. The first will be a continuation of the grammar study students began last year, focusing on verbs, modifiers, pronouns, and punctuation. The second approach will be individualized – examining each student’s writing and working on grammar issues that are particular to that student.
