This theme-based course focuses on taking contemporary literature and analyzing it through a global lens. Throughout the units, we will work on narrative, persuasive, and analytical writing, as well as speech, grammar, and research skills.
UNIT FIVE TEXT STATEMENT:
All of the required texts in the Unit Five English Curriculum were carefully chosen by a group of highly-qualified, informed, and professional educators. It is their belief that these works serve to help each student meet the standards laid-out by NCTE and the Common Core Standards. While we believe that all students will benefit from studying these texts, if a student or parent has a concern about a particular work, they should address it with their teacher to determine an appropriate course of action which may include an alternative text for that student.
