English 10/English 11 Advanced/Strategic Reading/ACT Prep
These courses are developed to prepare students for the rigorous demands of a college-level course and life after school and/or college. These courses will assist students in becoming curious, critical, and resposive readers of diverse texts. Students are expected to write effectively for different audience and purposes; to expand vocabulary; to analyze a variety of texts for themes, purposes, and rhetorical features; and to use the conventions of standard English grammar and usage in writing and speaking. These courses are to close skill gaps or enrich students as they prepare for life after high school.
