English Concepts - 11 & 12
Instructor: Mrs. Dauplaise   
English 11/12 Concepts Course Description: This course is designed to help students develop important skills in the areas of reading comprehension and written and oral communication through direct instruction, additional support, and review.á Students will gradually build upon skills that will further prepare them to be successful in the next grade, or the next phase of their lives after graduation. Class work will align with the state curriculum frameworks for English/Language Arts. Students will study literature by genre: short stories, novels, poetry, drama, epic, and nonfiction. Terminology for the analysis of literature will be emphasized. Composition will focus on persuasive writing and responding to literature. This course is designed for students who struggle with reading and writing. The English Concepts curriculum is a two year curriculum that is studied at a slower pace with more direct teacher instruction and more time to practice.á Students are expected to be active participants and try their best at all times.
á
Objectives: The student will:
  • Read, evaluate, and discuss a variety of literature, identifying the important elements of each piece.
  • Develop written fluency by responding frequently to literature in formal and informal essays.
  • Increase his/her working vocabulary.
  • Become a better listener and speaker.
