Advanced English I (Period 6)

Course Description

Welcome to Advanced English I. I am excited about my opportunity to teach and your opportunity to learn about the literature that shaped America and our world. During this class, you will be exposed to both fiction and nonfiction forms of literature. You will be learning the foundations of expository writing in this class, and learn to construct a well-planned, well-organized essay. By the time you have reached this level of your high school career, you should have a proficient knowledge of grammar and usage. Therefore, this class will focus on the more advanced areas of grammar and writing style. Individual grammar needs will be addressed as needed. While STAAR instruction is certainly an important feature in the English class, it is merely one component of a well-rounded course designed to build the skills you will need as you move toward college and/or your future career.
