Instructor: J. Fernandez The man who wont read has no advantage over the one who cant read. -Mark Twain Course Overview This 11th grade English course is designed to challenge your child to become a better reader, writer, and critical thinker. Also, this course

will prepare your child for the Comprehensive English Regents Examination in June. This English class is about more than just literature; it is about culture, language, written and verbal expression, and critical thinking. In 11th grade English, students will continue to use the skills that they developed in 10th grade in order to analyze and understand in greater depth what authors are trying to express through their literature. Throughout the course of the year, we will look both at the practical aspects of the English language, as well as its artistic side. By the end of the year, students will have grown to be even better readers, writers, and speakers who are able to use the English language proficiently, powerfully and creatively.
