Course Outline
The curriculum for grade 10 are the steps toward success on the Grade 11 State Regents Assessment.
We will read much from Literature and Language and The Language of Literature, the district literature books- as well as independent reading of novels. English 10 students develop a firm understanding of the use of literary elements and techniques as they read fiction and nonfiction. We will be reading Fahrenheit 451, And Then There Were None as well as Lord of The Flies. Taming of the Shrew is the Shakespeare selection we will be reading this year. Vocabulary will be an important part of reading and responding to literature.
