Honors English provides more of a challenge to students who are willing to take it. Students in Honors have higher level pieces of literature to read and comprehend, and have higher writing expectations as far as writing reflections and responses to assigned books, poems, or plays.
This is the first year that Boone High has offered this to sophomore. Ann Luong, sophomore, says, "It helps for the future in case you want to take more classes." She says this class opens more opportunities and that it is fun "because she challenges thrown at me allow me to see my potential in the English field." Emily Headley, sophomore, says, “Honors English helps me relate to the topics that we’re reading now. It’s awesome because we get to journal, which I like doing.”
Honors English is a great way to have students start off well in class early in their high school career. Students will learn about themselves as writers and learn the skills and techniques or literary analysis, which will open new doors in their career if they choose to follow the English path.
