Course Description:

This course is the equivalent to the first semester of tenth-grade English. This course will ask the student to read, analyze, and respond to short stories, drama, and poetry. This course will also address writing unified, well developed, coherent paragraphs; organization of short, multi-paragraph compositions; basic rules of grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and other mechanical matters.

The second semester course focuses on language, composition, and literature.  Because these three items are interlocking, they are studied together in each lesson.  The material and skills presented in this course are similar to those of second semester tenth grade English courses.  You will practice your writing skills in a variety of different forms:  by summarizing, paraphrasing, writing short answers, and creating paragraphs and essays.  Literary sections will range from classic to contemporary.  You will be exposed to different types of genres as well:  the short story, drama, and the novel.
