English 1 is designed to develop a student’s skills in grammar, vocabulary, and literature, with an emphasis on written expression. Students will reinforce their understanding of grammar, usage, and mechanics. Students will apply these skills to create paragraphs, essays, and a variety of compositions with strong sentence structure. Literary elements, poetry, and figures of speech will be introduced as well. Class activities will be interactive and hands-on to engage both enthusiastic and reluctant writers. Book List: Easy Grammar Plus Student Workbook, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, and Our Town by Thornton Wilder. This course is the equivalent of one high school English credit.
