At the high school level, reading instruction moves past decoding and fluency and focuses more on vocabulary and comprehension. 12th graders practice all forms of writing, with an emphasis on writing coherent and focused persuasive essays that convey a well-defined perspective and tightly reasoned argument. By their senior year, students should be able to think critically about ideas and then present their conclusions in a clear and well-organized composition.
