    Course Description
     
    English IV engages students in the careful reading and analysis of British Literature and informational texts. Students will read fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and drama. Through the close reading of selected texts, students deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students consider a work's structure, style, and themes as well as other elements such as mood, tone, figurative language, imagery, symbolism, satire and irony. In addition, students will continue to develop and use vocabulary and grammar skills. This course includes intensive study of representative works from various genres and periods, concentration on works of recognized literary merit such as (but not limited to) those by authors selected from the state adopted textbook. English IV students are expected to produce coherent and well organized informational pieces. Students will research selected topics and produce a completed research project that includes a written paper, oral presentation, and visual aids. Also, seniors will continue to pursue their entry into colleges/universities, post secondary schools, the military, or the world of gainful employment.
