    Mr. Eure

    Senior & English

    Welcome to English IV.  This course is based on the North Carolina Course of Study.  You will build on the skills you have learned in your previous English classes.  English IV includes a chronological study of British Literature, beginning with Anglo-Saxon literature and continuing into the 21st Century.  You will read poetry, plays, short stories, essays, and novels.  Grammar study and vocabulary study will be ongoing.  Most of your writing will be based on the literature that we are studying; however, you will also write college application essays, and you will create a resume and several business letters.  Teacher-made exams will be given at the end of both semesters.

     

    What will I need?

    1. Loose leaf notebook paper- All English assignments must be turned in on loose leaf paper.
    2. A spiral notebook- This notebook will be used for your English IV notes only and may be taken up and checked during the year.  Make sure you bring this notebook to class every day.
    3. Pencil and Pen (Dark blue or Black ink) - Bring these every day.
    4. A good College Level Dictionary to use at home.
