• Expository Reading and Writing 11

    Expository Reading and Writing 11 will prepare students read and analyze non-fiction works representing the classical and modern modes of rhetorical discourse. Students will develop skills to write effective expository and persuasive compositions, and will also develop the ability to produce an effective research paper. Students will learn to use the Rhetorical Analysis Template, developed by the CSU system, for their analysis of essays and development of compositions. This will help prepare students for college level reading and writing, and for success on the Early Assessment Program portion of the California Standards Test. Also included in the curriculum are full-length works from classical and contemporary American literature, including: The Crucible, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Great Gatsby, and Fahrenheit 451.
