In English 10 Enriched, students study various genres of literature that focus on the development of self and the relationship between the self and the world. Analysis of literature focuses on how and why literary and rhetorical features are used to create meaning in both fiction and nonfiction texts. Listening and speaking skills are taught through class discussions, seminar, cooperative group work, debate, project-oriented work and presentations. Writing skills are fostered through instruction in literary and critical analysis, argumentation, creative, and personal pieces. Research skills are developed via instruction on developing an argument research paper. The goals of this course are to prepare students for writing required of advanced English Language Arts courses and across academic disciplines.
