Module 1 Overview

English IV Introduction

What to Expect

English IV will be focused around both college and career readiness.

We will be building necessary skills during the first few modules, then we will move into a bit of alternating between British literature text study and career skills development.

We will read from several iconic British texts, including Shakespeare.
