Course Description

English I (General) is an examination of classical and contemporary non-fiction, poetry, short stories, drama, and novels, focusing on the integration of the three fundamental disciplines of language arts: literature, grammar, and composition. Students will read a variety of works, including fiction and non-fiction short stories, various types of poetry, plays, and famous speeches, including a specific focus on works written by authors such as Edgar Allen Poe, Mark Twain, Shakespeare, and Homer's "The Odyssey", among others. English I (General) focuses on answering the "big questions" in response to literature; making inferences, predictions, and connections; comparing works; and identifying figurative language and themes in literature. Skills are developed through a series of writing assignments as well as multiple choice exams and a comprehensive final.
