Grade 11 - English
English III (Credit: 1.00)English III is a survey of American Literature and literary culture from its inception through the twentieth century.
Students will explore the major literary forms, themes, authors, and periods of American Literature. They will
understand how this literature represents the experiences of people native to America, those who immigrated to
America, and those who were brought to America against their will. Emphasis is placed on a rhetorical analysis of the
literature to determine how authors achieve a particular purpose or effect. Through focused readings, composition,
speaking and listening activities, vocabulary study and research, students will continue to build the literacy skills they
need to meet the challenges of high school and beyond.
