Standard vs Honors English Tests in HS

aychtooOaychtooO 4 replies5 threads New Member
At my school, Honors classes are weighed as much as college-level classes (5.0 GPA) and I am taking "Honors English 2" as a Sophomore next year.

We have to read 3 books over the summer and I know zero information on the class other than the fact that we have a test on 2 of these books in the first couple of days at school. I got a 99% in Standard English 1 (everyone has to take Standard).

What DO YOU SUPPOSE the difference is between Standard English tests and Honors (equivalent to college-level) English tests?

(Standard English 1 tests were always 75% MC on story/plot and 25% passage-identification. Both finals were a thesis-driven essay written for homework)

    Can you find a friend/acquaintance who took Honors English 2 with this same teacher last year, and ask them?

    I doubt anyone on CC can provide a meaningful answer to your question.

    I don't know any Sophomores of 2018-19 because I am anti-social lol. Maybe I phrased the question wrong, I just kind of wanted to know what to be expecting from a big-boy English class and how I should prepare.
