    10TH GRADE ENGLISH II

    This course includes literature, grammar, writing techniques and practice, vocabulary, FSA preparation, and spelling. Literature includes short stories, poetry, drama, novel, biography, and non-fiction. Intermediate research skills will be developed and implemented in either a project or paper format.

    This course will help to develop the literacy, communication and critical thinking skills that students will need in high school, college, and the workplace.  During the semester we will read a variety of literature--short stories, poetry, novels, drama, as well as nonfiction.  We will engage in small group and class discussion.  We will reflect upon and write about what we have read and discussed.  We will view and listen to a diverse selection of media and create a variety of projects. We will concentrate on the following:  vocabulary enrichment, the mechanics of writing (grammar, punctuation, and usage), the writing process, formal academic writing, research skills and documentation, reading comprehension, and effective communication.

     

    11TH GRADE ENGLISH III

    This course provides a survey of American Literature from the gathering of voices in an emerging nation to the voices converging and speaking about globalization in the age of information.  The purpose of the course is to provide meaningful educational experiences in the language arts of reading, writing, listening, viewing, speaking, language, and literature.  Upon completion, students should be able to respond critically, through interpretation, analysis, and evaluation, to literary works in their historical and cultural contexts.

    Because it is important to understand the power of language and its impact on readers, writers, listeners, viewers and speakers, students in this course will use a variety of activities to hone their skills in those areas.  Students will use the reading and writing processes to construct meaning using technical, informative, and narrative texts.  They will participate in student led activities, including informal debates and formal class discussions and multi-media presentations. They will write for informative and argumentative purposes with attention to style and detail, as well as conventions. They will use the research process and individual inquiry to locate, analyze, and evaluate information.  Finally, they will respond critically and aesthetically to the literature that we read.
