About Us

English 11

English 11 is a survey of American Literature in connection to its historical context.  We will follow American Literature chronologically as it progresses through different literary styles starting with the Revolutionary period and continuing to the present day.  This class will look in-depth into each text we read, relating it to its American historical context, looking for its thematic implications, and discussing what we can draw from it in the present.  Students will be pushed to improve upon their reading, writing, and communication skills as well as develop work and organizational habits that will help them continue to succeed throughout the rest of their education.  Furthermore, 11th Grade is the SOL year for English.  This course will focus on the reading and writing skills necessary to pass this mandatory test.
