English II provides students with an introduction to World Literature. The course will also help students explore the reading, writing, and grammatical skills necessary for success on the the English II End of Course test.
The Common Core Essential Standards have changed the English II curriculum a little. The course is still a study of World Literature, but it no longer includes Western Europe (which has been added to English IV). The English II curriculum includes: African, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian, Eastern European, Central/South/Latin Americas, and Canada. Additionally, students are required to create writing and multimedia products in four genres: Narrative, Argumentative, Informative and Research.
