English 10: Composition and Spoken Language

This course combines the ELA Composition and Spoken Language curriculums to offer students a way to get all four credits in one course. Students will complete a discrete Composition unit where they get to choose a form of writing to focus on (screenplays, proposals, short stories, or editorials). Beyond that they will work through four units exploring the core competencies: thinking, communication, personal and cultural identity and personal and social responsibility.  Specifically, students will look at effective speaking, the dialogue in film and drama, oral traditions, oral news reporting, podcasts and public service announcements; culminating with an independent novel study and a final exam.
