The objective of English 12 is to cover a wider range of writing strategies and purposes, perform an in-depth research project, and interact with a variety of contemporary texts. As students are preparing to go beyond high school to pursue different areas of study or different paths, English 12 seeks to prepare students to write across multiple subjects. Additionally, students will engage in writing that will help them become, and continue to be active and engaged citizens. The research project is aimed at building research skills—such as identifying a topic, finding academic resources, and synthesizing a large collection of sources—that will be necessary in a university setting. Finally, English 12 includes a number of contemporary texts that aim to help students think deeply about social justice issues in the United States and beyond, as well as nurture a love for reading that will ideally extend beyond a student’s time at BK.
