English 10: Semester 2
Description: In this class, we will be working on expanding our knowledge of English. Specifically, this will include reading poems and stories, and sharpening our writing skills. English, however, is far more than reading and writing. English is all about learning to connect with the viewpoints and experiences of others. People of all ages, races, religions, and backgrounds have contributed to literature, and we are going to learn a lot from studying their words and ideas. Throughout this course, you will develop an understanding of many new concepts. You will have plenty of opportunities to show off the skills you learn through your coursework, quizzes, and exams. You’ll even be able to evaluate your own learning experience through surveys. Specifically, by the end of this course you will understand the following concepts: understand new vocabulary words; apply the six traits of writing to your own writing; understand and identify literary elements within a text; writing your own short story; understand how to utilize proper grammar and punctuation in your writing; identify elements of fiction; produce a five-paragraph essay; execute proper revision techniques in your writing; produce persuasive writing; apply proper research skills; apply reading strategies to your reading to further understanding; and analyze seminal U.S. documents.
