English 9 is a course that uses texts of high complexity to provide an integrated language arts study in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language in order to ready students for college and career. Students must think critically while actively reading for explicit and implicit meaning as they examine both literary and informational texts. 

Students will write for a variety of purposes including developing and supporting argumentative claims, creating informative and expository responses, and crafting narratives that develop real or imagined events. The course places an emphasis on identifying and using textual evidence to support critical analysis whether it be for a written or spoken response. Finally, students will acquire effective listening, viewing, and speaking skills and be able to transfer those specific skills into a collaborative setting.

The course also offers you an opportunity to explore more creative expressions of your acquired knowledge with unique and innovative projects. Finally, it encourages you to claim ownership of your learning, blending independent studies with your guided online experience, echoing a more “real world” reflection of personal accountability and responsibility.

English 11 has two main objectives. The first is to help build cultural capital, while you take a historical survey through the American literature timeline. You will then trace a path from the icons of the Colonial era, through the tumultuous 1800s, and stop at today’s Post Modern landscape. The second objective is to help build global citizenship, which will ask you to research, critically think, and write about the issues that are most crucial, most vital, and most affecting life around the world. Together, these objectives work to build upon the skills of the past while exploring the potential for a brighter future.
