Course titleAcademy English 2
Academy English 2 is a course designed for the verbally gifted student who not only has a love for reading and writing; but also possesses a strong foundation in critical thinking and inquiry; grammar; persuasive and narrative writing techniques; and discourse. At its core; Academy English 2 is a primer for both the AP Language and Composition (junior) and AP Literature and Composition (senior) courses. Introduced; practiced; and applied are the rhetoric and argument genre as well as literary style analysis. The literature is college-level and broadens the student?s exploration of what is commonly referred to as ?classics?; but shifts focus to studying authors who manipulated and/or departed from classical forms and motifs creating complex; multi-layered; subtle and sometimes controversial works of literature.
