2016-2017 Courses

English 12 Expository Reading and Writing

  • The 12th grade Expository Reading and Writing English course is designed specifically to help prepare students for the rigorous demands of reading and writing in the first year of college.  While current RBV English courses are already designed to prepare students for college, this course has a heavy emphasis on the rhetorical thinking, writing, speaking, and reading of expository texts that are predominant in post secondary schools.  Much of the course is dependent upon the internet so it is important that students research venues that allow access.

English 12 Expository Reading and Writing Humanities 

  • The 12th grade Expository Reading and Writing Humanities pilot English course is designed specifically to help prepare students for the rigorous demands of reading and writing in the first year of college by linking English 12 ERW with American Government/Economics.  Students will benefit from common lessons, projects, and assessments that help supplement both courses. While current RBV English courses are already designed to prepare students for college, this course has a heavy emphasis on the rhetorical thinking, writing, speaking, and reading of expository texts that are predominant in post secondary schools.  Much of the course is dependent upon the internet so it is important that students research venues that allow access.

English 9 College Preparatory

  • This course is designed to expand writing, discussion, and critical reading skills through the study of literature, writing, vocabulary, and language conventions.  Our goal is to establish the language arts skills that students will need to succeed in subsequent high school courses, to pass the California High School Exit Exam, and to be prepared for the challenges of college or career. In this class, students will be challenged to develop careful reading strategies, as well as solid writing and thinking skills. Students will be expected to express their ideas about the literature in formal and informal essays, group discussions, and creative projects and assessments.  The curriculum for English 9 is aligned with the California State English and Language Arts Standards.

    Students will be expected to utilize computers and the internet consistently throughout the course to develop both independent and group analysis. Plan for access to a computer and the internet on a regular basis.  Students are always welcome to use the computers in the library before school, at lunch, and after school


ELD 1-Conversation

  • This English only companion course to ELD Reading and Writing is designed to develop the conversational skills necessary for success in both the academic arena as well as in public in general.  Combining content specific language as well as a study of american idiom, students speak English every day in both small and large group settings.  Semester one emphasizes basic vocabulary and grammar and usage.  The second semester has a heavy emphasis on argumentation.
