    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 7A

    • Foundational Rhetoric: Students study a dialogue—in this context, a philosophical conversation and commentary—written by Plato, the grandfather of Western thought. Using techniques originally developed in ancient Greece, students build a strong foundation for rhetorical mastery and write their own philosophical dialogues.
    • Business and Marketing: Students apply their rhetorical knowledge to the world of business and marketing. By studying successful marketing strategies, students deepen their understanding of persuasive techniques and devise a marketing campaign for a fictional business.

    Honors LA 7B

    • Mysteries and Evidence: Students learn how to build a strong body of evidence and solve a mystery through advanced literary and rhetorical analysis. Students finish the unit by putting pen to paper to write their own mysteries.
    • U.N. Simulation: Taking on the roles of delegates in a simulated United Nations summit, students use and enhance their debate and rhetorical skills to address a global crisis.

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