Welcome to English I AD, H, Pre-AP
Students enrolled in English I continue to increase and refine their reading, writing, listening, speaking, viewing and representing communication skills. Students write in a variety of forms and edit their papers for clarity, engaging language, and the correct use of the conventions and mechanics of written English, producing final, error-free drafts. Students read extensively in multiple genres from world literature and learn literary forms and terms associated with selections being read. An emphasis is placed on organizing logical arguments with clearly expressed related definitions, theses, and evidence. Students write to persuade, report and describe. Honors, Pre-AP/GT classes emphasize advanced reading, analytical reasoning skills and expository writing in preparation for the Advanced Placement exams in language and literature, and summer reading is required.
