Grade 10 - English
English II (Credit: 1.00)English II students will study literature that spans centuries, continents, and genres. Each of the four thematically‐
integrated units encourages close study of this literature and its context. Students will gain valuable cultural insight as
they read and write about works depicting the social, personal, religious, and political struggles and triumphs faced by
people all over the world and all through history. Students will continue to build their literacy skills by engaging in
focused reading, composition, speaking and listening activities, vocabulary study, and research. By the end of the
course, students will have gained a broader perspective and will be well‐prepared to apply that perspective to the
study of American Literature in English III.
