How much homework is in English 2?

We estimate that the course workload will take 5-7 hours per week. During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

  • 40–50 pages of reading, guided by reading questions
  • Grammar exercise (some self-graded, some teacher-graded)
  • Vocabulary list and accompanying quiz
  • Occasional discussion forums or other homework assignments

Throughout the year, students complete 11 literary works, 2 literary analysis essays, 1 argumentative essay, 1 compare-and-contrast essay, 1 précis, several short creative compositions, 1 biographical research paper on a Christian world-changer, and weekly assignments and quizzes on grammar and vocabulary.
