English IV (184401R / 184402R)
In English IV, students will engage in grade level Common Core State Standards (CCSS) aligned reading and writing practices, through a wide range of literary and informational texts that will prepare them for post- secondary experiences. Students will engage in practices to support their mastery of the CCSS for Writing in their grade band, and express themselves in multiple writing formats including narratives, investigative reports, literary analyses, and research papers. Across all wri ng formats, students will write in the conventions of the CCSS writing modes. Students in English IV will employ academic English in discussion that align to CCSS for Speaking & Listening.
In an honors class students will be expected to meet the standards with less teacher scaffolding and more collaborative and independent practice. Although students at all levels of learning will have access to rigorous texts and grade level appropriate experiences, honors level courses may include advanced expectations in the following areas: text complexity, complexity of tasks and responses, and pacing. Students in English IV honors will participate in a summer reading project. Honors courses are weighted.
