Let us remember . . . that in the end we go to poetry for one reason, so that we might more fully inhabit our lives and the world in which we live them, and that if we more fully inhabit these things, we might be less apt to destroy them. Christian Wiman

Advanced Placement English Language and Composition
Enriched English 10: In this course, sophomores engage in reading both classic and contemporary American literature as they examine various time periods and literary movements beginning with the Transcendentalists. Among the major works read are The Crucible, A Raisin in the Sun, and The Catcher in the Rye. Students engage in close reading of difficulty texts, connecting contemporary and classic texts, and writing in a variety of writing in a variety of forms.
Advanced Placement English Language and Composition: In this course, seniors are engaged in the rhetorical analysis of primarily non-fiction texts and in the creation of their own texts. This is a college-level course in which strong writers with a passion for language are given an opportunity to develop a high level of sophistication in writing narrative, expository, analytical and argumentative prose.
