Description:

English 10A is the first semester of a year-long Language Arts course. In English 10, we will study and explore poetry, narratives, short stories, novels, non-fiction essays, articles and informational texts. Our comprehension of these texts will be facilitated by analyzing and evaluating the literary elements, plot, character development and themes of each work. As part of this course, we will continue to develop writing skills by experimenting with multiple forms of writing. We will clarify thinking and writing by improving our ability to support opinions, providing expressive details and using the writing process as a means to strengthen ideas. This course will provide ample opportunities for students to imaginatively and critically express themselves through multimedia resources as they make essential connections to the world, themselves and literature.
