Courses Taught

ELA II 

“English II  is an in-depth study of multicultural literature and literary nonfiction such as novels, short stories, poetry, drama, and literary nonfiction as well as the comprehension and analysis of informative/explanatory text through the use of authentic, real-world, increasingly complex text. Opportunities for rich discussion and analytical conversation should be provided regularly to support students’ correct use of Standard English grammar when communicating.

Students must also be able to: (a) write arguments to support claims, (b) write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas, and (c) write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events while demonstrating their command of the conventions of Standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing (North Charleston High School English Language Arts Department Handbook).”

AP Language and Composition 

AP English Language and Composition is a rigorous, university-level course. On Wednesday, May 16, 2019, all students enrolled in the course will take the AP English Language and Composition exam for the opportunity to obtain college credit for the course.


Our central focus includes three questions as we complete this course of study:

Who are we?

Why are we here?

How should we best live?


In our consideration of these questions, we will strive to discern how language has shaped our being, and how the stories that humans have created and communicated throughout our history have shaped the world. In short, we will study the power of language and rhetoric – how to understand it in the expressions and utterances of others and how to effectively use it in our own various forms of communication.
