English IV at CMHS will give students a learning experience equivalent to a typical undergrad introduction to literature class. Through close reading of literary texts, students will come to understand how writers use language to provide meaning and to answer the big questions in life.
As the culmination of a student’s English education, English IV includes the most challenging literacy tasks and prepares students for reading, writing, and speaking in college. Any student who applies himself and works hard will be prepared for the demands of college English after this course. Students enrolled in English IV will have the opportunity to earn college credit through CLEP and AP testing programs.
