Per the Kentucky Department of Education: "English II is designed to present a wide range of reading experiences with print and non-print materials that have literary, informative, persuasive, and practical purposes. This course also requires students to use the writing process and criteria for effective writing to demonstrate their abilities to write in a variety of forms and for multiple audiences and purposes. Students use writing-to-learn and writing-to-demonstrate-learning strategies to make sense of their reading and thinking experiences. Speaking, listening, and observing skills are used to communicate information for a variety of authentic purposes. In addition, students continue to incorporate inquiry skills and technology to communicate ideas. This course adheres to Kentucky Core Academic Standards requirements as well as Kentucky Standards for Transition Readiness." Students taking this course will likely be required to take a version of the End of Course (EOC) exam for English II that is forthcoming.
