About English IV
Welcome to English IV, which will sharpen your awareness of life, literature, language, and the writer’s craft. The English IV Honors course completes the global perspective initiated in English II. Though its focus is on European literature (Western, Southern, Northern with an emphasis on British), this course includes important U. S. documents and literature (texts influenced by European philosophy or action).
Advanced composition skills are vertically aligned to enable students to write at the college level as they employ research methodologies, argumentation, and thesis-driven work supported by textual-based evidence. Students will also hone their skills in mechanics, syntax, and rhetoric, both oral and written, within an academic context.
