English 12

Explore the dark side of human nature in English 12. We will consider revenge, madness, and evil as powerful forces in human history. We will select content that is challenging and will push each student to become better at thinking deeply about texts. Current content ideas include: Heart of Darkness, Apocalypse Now, and Othello. We will also practice the skills that are essential for succeeding on the provincial exam such as comprehension, comparison, and timed essay writing.
