 Syllabus

English 10 is a course that encourages and supports students to read, write, and think critically through the study of universal themes in American literature, nonfiction texts, and related media. Selected reading will be explored through a thematic lens that includes a study of the historical and social context of the literature. There will also be an emphasis on student's continued development as independent readers. In addition, students will study both academic and contextual vocabulary with a focus on independent acquisition. Students will be expected to write in a variety of modes (narrative, argumentative/research, literary analysis, expository, etc.). Various forms of assessments will be utilized to measure student’s academic growth and mastery of grade level skills.

Grading Procedures:

  • Summative – 35%: Tests, Projects, Published Writing, Vocabulary Unit Assessments, Independent Reading
  • Formative – 40%: Quizzes, Process Writing/Writing in Stages, Independent Reading, Student Self Reflections, Classwork
  • Supportive – 25%: Homework, Conferences, Collaborative Work, Quick Writes, Journal Entries, Reader Response Journals, Independent Reading
