9th and 10th Grade English
English I is a one period class that integrates reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through the implementation of the 9th grade SpringBoard curriculum. However, the specific focus of this year will be to strengthen your critical reading skills, expanding your understanding of the relationship between an author’s purpose and the tools he/she uses to achieve that purpose, and to widen and refine your writing skills, allowing you to compose clear and concise arguments, expositions, and narratives. This class will also focus on your ability to communicate both formally and informally through group activities and individual presentations.
English II is a one period class that integrates reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through the implementation of the 10th grade curriculum. Building on the skills you have learned in SpringBoard thus far, this year will help to strengthen your analytic and argumentative writing abilities, as well as your critical thinking and reading comprehension skills.
