English II



This class extends and refines the basic skills taught in English I by: 1) formally introducing the concepts of unity, conciseness and coherence in paragraph and theme writing; 2) introducing students to the structure and formation of a multi-paragraph essay; and 3) continuing the enrichment of the student?s vocabulary. Principles of grammar, usage and sentence structure continue to be stressed. The student?s writing is monitored to determine individual strengths and weaknesses.
