English II Pre-AP
English II PAP Summer Reading 2017
AP English III Summer Reading 2017
The goal of Pre-AP English II is for each student to increase and refine individual communication skills and to prepare for the AP English Language and Literature exams. Students are expected to plan, draft, and complete written compositions on a regular basis. Students edit these compositions for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English, resulting in the production of final, error-free papers. Students practice all forms of writing, including logical arguments, expressions of opinion, and personal forms of writing like responses to literature, reflective essays, and autobiographical narratives. Pre-AP English II students learn and use SAT vocabulary words, read extensively in multiple genres from world literature such as selected short stories, dramas, novels, and poetry originally written in English or translated into English. Texts of literature include A World War II Novel, Feudalism Novel, A Play, A Culture Novel, and An Author Study. Students not only learn literary forms and terms associated with selections being read, but they interpret the possible influences of the historical context of literary works.
