Welcome to English 12. Senior English addresses the individual and overall needs of students through the learning standards outlined by New York State. Areas of focus include reading and responding to texts through writing and speaking, managing and honing research skills, and the writing of the MLA paper. It is my hope that through practice with these skills, students will be college and career ready by exhibiting an increasing awareness and capacity for reading, writing, speaking and listening.
In addition, students are expected to demonstrate with regularity increasing levels of responsibility, independence and maturity. This too will prepare them for the outside world, in whatever capacity they choose to pursue.
