Description:

            In English 1, students refine their knowledge of the language through a focused study of Literature.  They will read a variety of informational texts as well as four major types of literary texts-fiction, literary nonfiction, poetry, and drama.  This reading includes both inside and outside of class.  Students will continue to develop a knowledge of vocabulary through reading, writing, and oral communication.  Using the conventions of written Standard American English, students will produce essays of various types, such as narratives, persuasive, expository, that are coherent, and well organized with a thesis and supporting evidence.

            In addition to other writings, students will carry out the research process by selecting a topic, collecting information, presenting their findings-written and visual format-and distinguishing their ideas from those of others by providing accurate and complete documentation.  In the completion of this course, students will assimilate and strengthen the reading, writing, communicating and researching skills they have acquired from all English courses as a solid preparation for entering college or the workplace.
