    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 6A

    • Classical Philosophy: Students craft a persuasive speech using skills gained studying the origins of classic critical thinking and rhetorical skills.
    • Creative Writing: Using advanced grammar concepts and studying how other writers make language work for them, students will create a collection of polished creative writing pieces.

    Honors LA 6B

    • Research: Students develop strong research skills that will benefit them in any humanities classroom. They learn how to judge the quality of research sources, produce annotated bibliographies, and write feature articles that incorporate their research.
    • Literary Analysis: Students will explore A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. At the end of the unit, students memorize speeches from the play and use their public speaking and literary analysis skills to build strong performances.

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