    English II PAP Summer Reading 2018

     

    The goal of this course integrates the course requirements for AP World History and  Pre-AP English II to increase understanding and allow for more purposeful instruction/learning. The expectations for AP World History are that in this college-level course students will study the development and interaction of world cultures throughout history by applying a wide range of factual knowledge as they analyze themes.  This course emphasizes history from 600 BCE to the present day. Students may earn college credit by scoring sufficiently on the AP examination administered in the spring. We will be utilizing Edmodo on a regular basis, please sign up for an account and bring technology daily. We will also utilize Remind.com for communication purposes. Through our English II PAP course, we plan to help students increase and refine individual communication skills and to help students prepare for future AP course by using texts that enhance the understanding of the AP World History text.  Students will be expected to plan, draft, and complete written compositions on a regular basis. Students edit these compositions for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English, resulting in the production of final, error-free papers. Students practice all forms of writing, including logical arguments, expressions of opinion, and personal forms of writing like responses to literature, reflective essays, and autobiographical narratives. Pre-AP English II students learn and use SAT vocabulary words, read extensively in multiple genres from world literature such as selected short stories, dramas, novels, and poetry originally written in English or translated into English.
