In English I and II we will emphasize the continued development of reading (both literary and informational), writing, speaking and listening, and language skills based on Kentucky’s common core standards and college readiness standard. You will master crucial basic skills of grammar, literature, and public speaking; prepare for the state On-Demand Writing assessment; and prepare for the state End of Course (EOC) assessment in English II.
You will learn strategies, techniques and tips to help you read, interpret and respond to academic, personal, workplace and functional reading. In addition to writing and grammar skills, you will look at media from which we get our current events including newspapers, magazines and the Internet. In writing we will concentrate on 3 types of texts: Persuasive/Argumentative, Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative.
