The online English 12 course prepares students for future academic and vocational success. Students write informational, expository, and persuasive/argumentative papers. Additionally, they produce a well-documented research paper. During the writing process, students demonstrate their understanding of grammatical conventions and practice techniques for improving their writing style and fluency. A survey of British literature helps the students relate to the political, social, and philosophical perspectives of each historical period. As students preview the social, historical, and literary elements of each time period, they begin to see how the British and their language have influenced the lives and literature of many people.
