IB English 11/12
The focus of IB English is the study and appreciation of literary achievements of our culture and the cultures of other societies. Students will develop skills in literary criticism, writing, and oral presentation through a study of World Literature in translation, and major poetry, novels, drama, and other texts written in English. Students will complete a number of creative and analytical assignments, including written examination of a work in detail, and an essay exam. IB English 11 aims to promote an international perspective by comparing works of different societies and times, as well as an enjoyment of, and life long interest in, world literature.
