English Grade 11 & 12
Jul 1, 2019 at 10:25 am, runs for 4 weeks
Students in Grade 11 continue to develop their writing and reading abilities all year long. Composition work, with an emphasis on academic writing, includes: fluency, awareness of audience, selection and arrangement of details, point of view, avoiding clichés, using figurative language, building sentences and paragraphs, using effective grammatical constructions, and improving punctuation, spelling, and usage skills. A review prior to the SAT is a functional part of the course of study.
The 12th grade curriculum was developed with four overarching concepts. Vocabulary instruction is year-long and incorporates SAT vocabulary in the initial part of the year as well as text-specific vocabulary.
