    • Reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing competencies are integrated throughout the students’ learning experiences.
    • Benchmarks for the Florida Standards and Sunshine State Standards are repeated as needed in course sequences. As students progress from one course to the next, increases should occur in the complexity of materials and tasks and in the students’ independence in the application of skills and strategies.
    • Learning tasks and materials accommodate the individual needs of students. Technology is available for students to develop competencies in the language arts.

    Major Concepts/Content. The purpose of this course is to encourage students to make cross-curricular links; to develop a maturity of thought appropriate to students at this level; and to achieve an understanding and usage of the English language which enables them to express arguments, ideas and opinions in a reflective and academic manner. An awareness of the wider implications of particular issues will enhance the quality of the student’s response to the questions; the General Paper is not a test of general knowledge. The key objective is for the student to convey information or opinion in a way that is thoughtful, perceptive and immediately intelligible to the reader. 

    After successfully completing this course, the student will: 

    1. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding in relationship to topic areas identified (historical, social, economic, political, philosophical, scientific, geographical, mathematical, literature and language, arts and crafts).
    2. Demonstrate knowledge of methods and techniques appropriate to a specific task.
    3. Demonstrate the ability to identify, select and interpret, through reasoned consideration, material (including knowledge) appropriate to a specific task.
    4. Demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge, understanding and analysis in relation to a specific task (e.g. in drawing references, providing explanations, constructing and developing arguments, understanding the implications of a suggested course of action or conclusion, etc.
