English IV Honors

  • Welcome to the English IV: Honors British Literature course at North Lincoln High School. We will strive to improve skills in all modes of communication with a focus on some of the best efforts to entertain and inform by some of the most talented Brits to attempt to challenge their readers to evaluate their techniques—often figurative—to gain deeper understanding of humanity.  This course overview will give all interested parties an idea of what to expect this semester in our class.
