    English 12


    COURSE DESCRIPTION: English 12 is a senior-level course designed to apply and master reading skills and strategies through the exploration of literature. The literature that will be studied includes a variety of short stories, poetry, fiction, non-fiction and additional supplemental pieces. This year, English 12 will explore the concept of monsters. Essentially, the literature that we will be reading and discussing focuses on the role that society has in the creation of its monsters.  We will also be focusing on how society is responsible for their monsters and how fears and anxieties are embodied within those monsters. Therefore, our texts will explore the themes of monsters in order to help us analyze our own culture’s use of the word “monster.”
