for English IIIThe junior year of high school is both rewarding and challenging. This is an important year for students, because they will be applying to colleges and they will be selecting their future course(s) of study. The English III course will help students prepare for college.Students will follow the HASD English III curriculum in order to better prepare them for their future educational plans and careers. English III will follow the growth of America as it begins with the natives, early settlers, and Puritans. This era will be studied through short works and poetry. Students will then read three major works including The Crucible, Of Mice and Men, and The Great Gatsby. Major writing assignments include a family tree narrative paper as well as two argumentative writing assignments.If time permits, additional material will be covered.
