Honors English 11

Eleventh grade Honors English focuses on American literature and authors with a strong emphasis on writing. Idaho state standards for English will guide the coursework. This course follows American literature chronologically, starting with Native American legends, early colonization, all the way to modern authors and poets. The purpose is to examine how art mimics and reacts to socio-political events, ideas, and movements.

Speaking and listening will play an important role, as these are skills we need, to improve daily interactions with people, one-on-one.

With each of these literary areas we will build content-related vocabulary and write reflective essays.
