English 10, Semester 1

English 10, Semester 1 is both a continuation and enrichment of the concepts students in English 9. Students use literary interpretation, analysis, comparisons, and evaluation to read and respond to representative works of historical or cultural significance appropriate for Grade 10 in classic and contemporary literature balanced with nonfiction. Using the writing process, students will read, analyze, and produce narrative, responses to literature, expository, and argumentative compositions, research reports, and descriptive writings. Students will be expected to apply standard English conventions, such as grammar, mechanics, and manuscript form. The writing and projects conducted in this course will be supported by research and technology to employ and enhance 21st Century Skills.
