Twelfth grade students will build upon the knowledge and skills acquired in the earlier grades in a more refined and sophisticated way. The emphasis in literature will be the British tradition. Students will master the following: in-depth analysis of literary patterns and arguments, historically and culturally significant works of literature that reflect and enhance their studies of history and social science, well defined and tightly reasoned compositions of a variety of genres, focused and coherent presentations that demonstrate solid reasoning, oral presentations that connect personal experiences to broader literary themes.
In this class, we will also be completing your Senior PACE. To help with that, Mr. Archibald has created a Senior Pace Website that holds material for you. You should take a look at it when you have the chance as this class will make frequent use of it.
- This course covers the entire Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles (AP CSP) Framework and addresses the seven Big Ideas in the framework with a primary emphasis on programming (Big Idea 5) and, closely linked with programming, on abstraction (Big Idea 2).
The secondary emphasis of AP CSP is on the social implications of computers (Big Idea 7, Global Impact). Social topics are included in every unit. Students are encouraged to think critically about each application of technology. The Big Ideas of creativity (Big Idea 1) and algorithms (Big Idea 4) are addressed throughout the units, and there is particular attention to the Internet (Big Idea 6) in Unit 4.
