The Gilbert Public Schools 2016--2017 High School Course Description Book says AP English Literature & Composition “is designed to engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. . . . Because of the mature reading level, students who are interested in this course may wish to review the reading list. Only students planning to take the Advanced Placement Exam should take this course. . . .”
The Gilbert Public Schools 2016-2017 High School Course Description Book says Sophomore English “will emphasize the universal themes in world and multicultural literature with an emphasis on critical reading skills. The writing skills of drafting, revising, and proofreading will be emphasized.”
I have been teaching English at Mesquite High School since 2004. At one time or another, I have taught Senior Composition, World Literature, Contemporary Literature, Shakespeare, Holocaust Literature, Sophomore English, and AP English Literature & Composition. I founded our Creative Writing Club and, currently, I serve as adviser for Mesquite’s chapter of the National Honor Society.
