Advanced English


This year-long course is designed for Advanced English learners in grades 9-12 with English language proficiency between 2.5-3.5 in the area of literacy, and is aligned to the scope and ELA standards of English 3. The curriculum focuses on English language acquisition in the four domains of reading, writing, listening, and speaking referencing the CCSS for English/Language Arts as well as WIDA's English Language Development Standards. Students use adapted and authentic texts including textbooks, leveled readers, informational, and literary texts to improve their ability to read, write, and think critically about the course's themes and topics. Students develop literacy and discussion skills while engaging in both collaborative work with their peers as well as independent work. Students create shorter and extended writing in the modes of narrative, informative/explanatory, and argumentative texts while leveraging technology, the research process, and the writing process to develop and publish writing. An emphasis on organizational and study skills necessary for success in American high schools is included.
