Eleventh-grade English focuses on the literature of the United States and of other countries in North and South America. Typical texts for this class include, but are not limited to: Literature of the Americas, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby, The Grapes of Wrath, and The Catcher in the Rye. The other basic elements of the Laboratory School English Program are stressed as well: daily journal freewriting; dictation sentences for grammar and mechanics; vocabulary and linguistics; reading along; and both informal and formal writing assignments. Students in this grade will be working on writing personal narratives, essays, and free-verse poems.
