English III Honors is designed for highly-motivated students who demonstrate the passion and intellect for a more complex use of the English language and the texts and writings that exemplify these complexities.  The English III Honors course is the most rigorous program of 11th grade ELA, placing greater demands on outside, independent reading, critical analysis, research, and written expression.

The environment of the honors course is largely student-led and student-centered.  Students who enter this course should expect to read and reflect on their reading via extensive discussions and writing.  Students who perform well in an honors sequence are determined, inquisitive, capable of constructing and evaluating arguments using evidence, and are able to master new concepts quickly.  In addition, an honor student is expected to consistently contribute to purposeful class discussions and cooperative learning situations.  Selected texts may include:  Into the Wild, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, The Catcher in the Rye, The Crucible, Beowulf, The Tragedy of King Richard III, Student-autobiography or memoir + companion informational texts.   It is highly recommended for students to also enroll in US History II Honors to best compliment the reading and writing expectations and rigor.
