High School Advanced English
This class is recommended for high school students (or highly gifted middle school students) who are on the Pre-AP and AP track. Per semester session, students will be assigned 20 or more readings (short stories), and they will be expected to produce a well-written essay within 40-50 minutes. Students who sign up must be prepared for the rigor and challenge to think and write critically.
On college entrance exams, this is a vital skill as students must process information, analyze content, evaluate elements, and develop a quick prewrite to establish a well-grounded piece of writing that conveys depth of thought, reflection, and a mature perception.
