LANGUAGE ARTS 11/12

 

This class is a comprehensive language arts and literature studies course that will cover writing, vocabulary, spelling, and reading comprehension while promoting active reading and reflective thinking.


Literature studies will provide the stimulus for writing, and assignments will give students exposure to the elements, language, and writing methods, focusing on content, style, organization, and mechanics. Writing skills will be challenged and refined through classroom instruction, guided practice, and at-home assignments.


Students need to read and write at the 10th-grade level. This is not a remedial class.


Weekly Homework: 3-6 hours each week reading the assigned chapters and completing homework assignments.

Please note there will be essay assignments that may not pertain to the novels being read. While we will analyze the literature, students will be given essay assignments that will provide practice for writing in genres such as persuasion and argumentation.
