Honors Texts for Literature and Composition

Honors Texts for Literature and Composition (E2)

English II: Literature and Composition

The Honors Track for Literature and Composition involves additional reading and writing, which is described in the study guide. Another way you can use the honors texts is if you’ve already read a focus text for a module, you may substitute an honors text.

Visit Everyday Education to learn more and purchase Literature and Composition. You’ll also find pages of widgets for the focus texts and honors texts there.

NEW! Add the ebook to your purchase for only $15 more per level.

You and your student will have the print book for reference and evaluation, but the student will be able to view the modules online, and click links (on most computers) to the context resources, rather than typing out the URLs.
