English 4 provides instruction in the critical analysis of representative examples from British literature, as they reflect changes in the language and the development of the literary traditions of the English language. Writing experiences are structured to provide practice in real-life writing situations likely to be encountered beyond secondary school, including technical, creative, and traditional academic modes. Opportunity is provided to extend speaking, researching, and listening skills. Content includes instruction in vocabulary strategies and reading necessary for comprehension of printed materials. Technology is incorporated into all aspects of the course.
