English I Honors

Course ID: 1018

English I is the first course in our series of high school courses composed of literature, composition, grammar and vocabulary designed for ninth graders. Students will learn the basics of grammar, build vocabulary, and establish the groundwork for future literary criticism. The course will focus on developing each student into a strong writer by using the six traits of writing: content, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions. Students will practice all types of writing including descriptive, poetry, expository, persuasive, narrative, and a research paper. Compositions will be submitted through Study Place and a hard copy will be brought to class. Weekly grammar worksheets will be graded by the parent with scores submitted to the instructor via Study Place. In addition, ten new vocabulary words and a few roots words will be introduced weekly. The students will create ten “flash cards” in a Word document for submission. Parents will administer a weekly quiz on the words. Literature is the third component in which students will read a variety of short stories and books and answer questions regarding the reading. Parents will grade literature for completion. Poetry and short story elements will be highlighted. Tests for the four components of this class will be given in the middle and end of each semester at home and submitted for instructor grading.

Please purchase the books with the covers shown below. See the pictures in the Course Outline to ensure purchasing the correct editions according to the ISBN. These are the editions needed as they are the textbooks for class, and each student needs to have the same book. If the wrong book is brought to class, the student will have to reorder the correct one.

This class will involve up to 1.5 hours of homework per day.

Parental Involvement: Parents, NEVER STUDENTS, are to honestly grade and poll the student’s work. Please be prepared for weekly writing, reading, vocabulary, and grammar assignments. In addition, parents should be prepared to be involved in the class. Parents will be responsible for grading objective vocabulary quizzes and grammar homework. The parent will also check literature worksheets for completion. Parents will poll the vocabulary quiz, and literature and grammar homework. The teacher will grade all compositions and vocabulary homework. Students and parents enrolling in this course must have access to a Microsoft Word processing program and possess basic computer skills as compositions and homework will be typed and submitted through Study Place. Additionally a hard copy will be brought to class. Please note: Mac users must save their reports to a Word Doc before sending them to Mrs. Gardner through Study Place.

Notes: All images on the schedule page have been retrieved from
bingimages.com and Vanessa Bush has compiled the vocabulary, grammar, and composition worksheets.

Parent’s and Student’s Responsibility: Watch the English I Tutorial Including Course Overview and Navigating StudyPlace before Open House.
