English 10 Course Catalog Description:The 10th-grade English program continues to develop students' language arts skills. In reading instruction, critical analysis of literature helps students to improve their reading comprehension and appreciation for both classical and contemporary works. The writing component provides a variety of composition experiences as the students work through the writing process to produce narrative, expository, and persuasive texts. Instruction in grammar, usage, and style is integrated into the study of literature and writing. In addition to studying vocabulary in the context of literature, students improve their word knowledge by studying classical roots. Student achievement is assessed through tests, quizzes, writing portfolios, conferences, and group and individual projects and presentations.
