In this course, students explore the theme of the American experience by reading works from and about the Founding Fathers and stories of unsung heroes. They also read a chosen novel to learn about the elements of the American dream. Students apply literacy skills and strategies, complete application and writing assignments, and practice grammar and usage skills. This is the second course in a two-part Eleventh-Grade English series. This course also encompasses the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
