ENGLISH 11 A & B
English 11, an integrated English course based on Indiana’s Academic Standards for English/Language Arts in Grade 11, is a skills-based study of American literature produced from the early Colonial period through the present day. Students in this course will be exposed to a variety of genres, including the short story, poetry, drama, folk tales, and non-fiction pieces. Works by members of various cultural and ethnic minorities, including Native Americans and African-Americans, are included in the syllabus to provide a comprehensive study of the American experience through literature. Written and oral exercises require students to analyze and explain how culture and literature are interconnected and distinctly American. Students write and deliver grade-appropriate multimedia presentations and access, analyze, and evaluate online information.
