    Curriculum

    Each 18-week term will cover 2 units, with each unit featuring a long-term project that integrates a variety of reading, writing, critical thinking, and grammar skills.

    Honors LA 4A

    • Narrative Writing: Students explore influential texts of the Revolutionary period from a language arts perspective, including misleading texts on both sides, and learn to create quality narratives of their own.
    • Expository Essays: Students are introduced to both prominent and lesser-heard voices from the Civil War era as they use careful analysis to write evidence-based essays and present a live documentary-style presentation in class.

    Honors LA 4B

    • Persuasion: The quest to secure voting rights in the United States is the background for this unit's study of the tools of persuasive writing and speaking.
    • Poetry: Students read and analyze a work of poetic memoir, then craft their own personal narratives in poetic form, thereby contributing to a collective "history" of their class's lifetimes.

    Students must purchase the required books before the start of the course.
