9 Honors English 0918
The freshman level English course focuses on high school level competencies in reading, writing, and language skills.
Writing conventions will include sentence, paragraph, and essay structure as well as numerous elements of grammar. Students will write for multiple purposes utilizing multiple writing strategies.
Literature in the course will focus on recognizing literary elements, genre, and authorial intent in literature and informational texts.
Additionally, all language arts classes are required to include digital citizenship and digital best practices in accordance with state standards.
This is an honors class, and as such more will be required of you than in a traditional classroom. Most of this additional effort will come in terms of increased expectations in depth of thought and pacing. Additionally, critical and independent thinking skills will be emphasized over rote practice of pedestrian material with the assumption that such redundancy is unnecessary.
