English 10: Composition and Focused Literary Studies-Science Fiction
This course combines the ELA Composition and Focused Literary Studies curriculums to offer students a way to get all four credits in one course.
Students will complete a discrete Composition unit where they choose a form of writing to focus on (screenplays, proposals, short stories, or editorials).
Beyond that they will work through four units Novel Study, Poetry, Short Stories, and Non-Fiction; exploring the core competencies: thinking, communication, personal and cultural identity, and personal and social responsibility.
Specifically, students will look closely at the science fiction genre studying examples of poetry, short stories, and a novel; they will dissect them to see what make them effective; culminating with a final exam.
