English Language Arts Honors

Full-year course - 1 credit
English Language Arts Honors is a college-preparatory course, so in order to enroll in the class, students must have earned a B- or better each semester of English III.  

ELAHon students are introduced to many of the classics of literature, including BeowulfThe IliadThe Canterbury Tales, and MacBeth.  Students also do an extensive study of rhetoric:  the rhetorical situation (including the rhetorical triangle); SOAPSTONE; ethos, pathos, and logos; and rhetorical analysis. Vocabulary instruction centers around 100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know.  In-depth studies of the novel The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas; the memoirs Night, by Elie Wiesel, The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls, and Educated, by Tara Westover; and the novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson, are conducted, all of which include various writing and research assignments.  Students will be required to memorize a poem of their choice each quarter as well as to craft several original poems. Students write "Panther Hill" for the Brodhead Free Press and “Panthers on the Prowl" for the Independent Register each week as well as producing a “Panther Weekly Update” segment for the school’s webpage and Facebook page.
