Little late to this but what are the state standards for each class? Is there any way you can reach out to other teachers within the district to discuss?
Are American and British Literature survey courses (as in students are supposed to read and analyze a variety of works within that genre) or are you supposed to teach them from a historical perspective? I'd bend towards a survey class if not otherwise specified. Pick a couple of books per quarter to work on and analyze (either chronologically or by theme). If you're not sure about analyzing them, I'd go by the Notice and Note strategies which puts the emphasis on the kids noticing and responding to the works rather than a teacher-led right versus wrong answer.
I like tmbg's suggestions for speech, those are great.
Composition----college essay would be good. Story corps type questions as a structure. Composition II students---you might find out what they did last year and build on it.
Creative writing: consider a variety of types of writing and work on those. Rubrics for what should be included.
