CP English 12 A
Instructor: Ms. Khweiss   

In order to ensure college and career readiness, students will engage with works that extend across genres, cultures, and centuries that explore questions concerning the human condition. Through the rigorous analysis of both fictional and informational texts, students will learn to understand the world in which we are living. In order to ensure proficiency in writing, students will assert their own opinions, and critical literary analysis through the use of well-developed and supported arguments. The skills both introduced and reinforced in this course aim at preparing students to perform proficiently at a college-ready level; however, the literary and communicative skills used in this class will help develop independent and critical thinkers and citizens.
