This course is designed to equip students with the necessary skills to become critical thinkers, foster students with the tools to master all of the state requirements for English I, prepare students for the State of Texas State Assessments (STAAR) and college readiness.
We will engage in English content on a daily basis using Schoology, the digital learning platform adopted by our campus. All reading and writing lessons will be added to Schoology, with the expectation that all students log in daily to complete assignments independently and on time. Additionally, we will explore expository, persuasive, and reflective/narrative essays through the writing process using our knowledge learned through multiple mini-lessons (thesis statement, comma rules, sentence variety, etc.). All acquired concepts will be assessed through multiple-choice tests, formal essays, and independent or group projects. Lastly, the students will also complete a district exam- demonstrating their mastery of comprehension and skills they have internalized throughout the school year.
