Students in 10th grade English honors will continue their preparation for college level skills in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking as outlined in the CCSS. This course will broaden the perspectives of students as we deal with literature from a variety of sources in order to assist them in becoming academically, culturally, and technologically literate citizens within their communities.
By interacting with classic, modern, and contemporary works of fiction and non-fiction, students will have the opportunity to develop their own personal perspectives of the world in which they live, and apply them in their daily lives. In this honors class, the expectation will be for high quality work, as students meet and exceed state standards. There will be a strong emphasis on literary analysis and building rhetorical skills in order to prepare these students for AP courses.
