Introduction to 12th Grade


In grade 12, students understand and analyze substantive, complex expository works of literary nonfiction as well as a diverse spectrum of stories, poems, plays, and novels, using evidence to support their analysis. Students also perform a variety of complex reading tasks focused on recurrent themes and philosophy in literature from grasping the subtleties of an author’s point of view to perceiving when a text leaves matters ambiguous. Students become skilled at determining how multiple themes or ideas combine and intertwine to produce a complex narrative or explanation as well as evaluating the premises, arguments, and rhetoric present in seminal texts from history. Students demonstrate listening skills by synthesizing the comments and claims of others, responding thoughtfully when encountering diverse perspectives, and by skillfully presenting findings both orally and in writing.
