English 3 Honors is an advanced course that examines works of American writers from the seventeenth century to the present, introducing students to a wide range of works that give voice to diverse perspectives on being American. Students will study literary and artistic movements, such as classicism, romanticism, naturalism, modernism, and postmodernism. This course also includes intensive work on composition, including college essay style narratives, literary analysis, and other expository forms. The required research paper and speech assignments provide practice in research methods and documentation, MLA compliance, self-expression, and organization skills.
Honors level classes can expect more rigorous requirements for assignments and assessments.
Prerequisite: Successful completion of previous grade level Honors English with a “B+” or higher
This 6-week course is offered for first time credit, for credit grade replacement, or for non-credit enrichment in preparation for taking the course in the future. Please check with your school regarding credit from outside institutions.
