English Course Information



All levels of English 9, 10, 11, and 12 will offer students intensive instruction in composition, literary analysis, and rhetoric.

Student writing should build on skills developed in previous grades, becoming more competent in the writing traits and essential skills. In addition to persuasive and analytical writing, each grade will devote extensive time to developing effective research skills and proper citation skills. Teachers will use traditional essays as well as authentic assessments and digital assessments to evaluate these skills.


Students will be exposed to and encouraged to develop an appreciation and understanding of the many, varied genres of literature including both fiction and nonfiction. Students will also be encouraged to read self-selected literature to help them develop stamina and motivation to read, write, and think about a variety of texts.


Students will be prepared for college and career communication skills through experience with public speaking, active listening in small group settings, and collaboration with classmates in small-group situations.Through a comprehensive study of writing, literature, and vocabulary, students will receive  preparation for SOL’s, SAT's, ACT's, and other tests taken throughout high school.
