Online College Prep English III

Course Description

English III (College Prep) is a chronological study of the development of American literature through various genres including: non-fiction, poetry, short stories, drama, and novels. Students will analyze and evaluate informational and literary works in conjunction with American historical events beginning with the Native American oral tradition and continuing into the contemporary period of the present. Through reading prolific writers such as Anne Bradstreet, Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Frederick Douglass, Ernest Hemingway, Katherine Anne Porter, and Amy Tan, students will explore major questions surrounding the American identity, literature as a reflection and shaper of society, and the relationship between literature and setting. In tandem with literary study, they will also sharpen vocabulary and grammar skills through interactive activities and writing assignments. Multiple choice, open-response, and essay assessments will measure students’ progress throughout their study of the content. English III (College Prep) contains additional writing essay assignments than what is required for English III (General).
