English 09: Semester 1
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 be able to: understand theme and inference by interpreting poetry and other literary works; remember new vocabulary words by defining root words and definitions; understand the conventions of standard English by demonstrating proper usage in your writing; understand figurative language by interpreting literary devices used in poems; understand the process of online researching by conducting your own research assignment; understand the six traits of writing by demonstrating how they are used in your own writing; create multimedia elements in your work by designing your own projects; understand elements of a story (setting, plot, point of view, etc) by discussing how they appear in several short stories; understand “The Hero’s Journey” by explaining the different elements of the hero’s journey and how it appears in storytelling; create your own short story by developing an outline and producing final results; and read and analyze several major works of literature, including “Night,” “To Kill A Mockingbird,” and “Much Ado About Nothing”.
