Senior English – Honors Course

Humanities | English
English Elective
Grade: 12
Credits: 1

The primary goal of Senior English at Thetford Academy is for students to develop their abilities as writers and independent critical readers. In this college-level course, seniors read and study selections from some of the best writings of American and world literature—books, plays, poetry, and short stories that are often called “classics.” The writing component includes personal responses, analytical essays about literature, and a research essay. Senior English is for those seniors with an exceptional interest in literature and writing who are willing to work hard at both.

Prerequisite: Summer reading and writing are mandatory for this course; the assignments may be picked up during the last week of May.
