    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 5A

    • Research: Students select a famously unsolved mystery, then conduct a short research project to investigate the unknown. Students will create a case file on their mystery, which they'll pitch as the subject of a new TV miniseries.
    • Persuasion: In their examination of the sinking of the Titanic, students learn how to maneuver through conflicting points of view in cross-examination.

    Honors LA 5B

    • Expository Essays: The disappearance of Amelia Earhart is the foundation of this unit, in which students learn how to build a strong, fact-based thesis. Students conclude the unit by writing an informative essay and interviewing each other for a new mystery documentary.
    • Narrative Fiction: Students craft original historical fiction by selecting a topic & conducting story-building research into the time period to build a rich, accurate setting and plot.

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