English III

Full-year course - 1 credit

The English III curriculum combines the language arts strands of language, speaking and listening, reading, and writing within a survey of American Literature.  Our study of language will include grammar, usage, mechanics, and vocabulary.  Grammar skills review is interspersed throughout the year as warranted by each individual class.  Our literature study focuses on selections in the Holt McDougal Common Core Edition textbook.  We will study both literature and informational texts in our literature units.  Students are also required to read two books of their choice per quarter and to keep a Reader's Notebook of their thinking as they are reading their books.  Throughout the year students will produce a wide variety of narrative, informative, and argumentative writing.  In that writing they will often draw evidence from the literary and informational texts they are studying as well as conduct research to build and present their knowledge.
