This class is designed to address all of the California State Standards for English Language Arts as directed in the SCUSD Standards Map issued in August of 2009, as well as the California Common Core Standards adopted in October of 2010. In addition to covering the standards in conjunction with our textbook, credits will include
autobiographical narrative writing, fictional narratives and short stories, persuasive writing and speaking, indepth analysis of literary works, functional document analysis, grammar and a unit on poetry. Students will be working with progress toward the California Standardized Testing in mind and will complete credits in the Holt
Literature and Language Arts textbook in addition to enrichment activities designed to give depth to their understanding of the material. Sophomore students will spend a considerable amount of time preparing for the California High School Exit Exam administered in March.
