RV English 12 - Mr. Fricko 

All students will continue to improve upon their abilities in reading, writing, listening, and speaking.  We will develop strategies that will increase awareness of both American & world literature.  EXPECT TO READ.  We will improve our research skills.  You will be challenged to conduct original and independent research that is characteristic of a collegiate level course.  We will constantly be writing and reviewing relevant grammar and mechanics.  I want you to enhance your vocabulary usage and eloquence in speech and writing.  THUS, EXPECT TO WRITE.  Your ability to communicate effectively will be a governing factor in many aspects of your life.
