English 1 Honors (ENGL150)
1.0 (yearlong course)
A grade of an 85% or higher in the subject area course taken the previous year.
(Previously known as Language Arts 9 Honors.)
English I Honors offers highly motivated students material that closely mirrors ENGL100, with an emphasis on higher-level thinking skills and academic writing, while reading short stories, poetry, nonfiction, and novels and viewing a Shakespearean play. Students will connect with classmates as they explore universal themes that relate to real-life experiences. Additionally, students encounter weekly vocabulary lessons and grammar lessons that will strengthen necessary skills for success at the next level of language arts.
NOTE for Honors: English 1 Honors (ENGL150) is an enriched version of ENGL100. The supplemental literature and assignments in the Honors course allow students the opportunity to reinforce their learning as they gain a deeper understanding of the material. Students are supported by the teacher and by the lessons themselves as they work through the course. Students in the Honors course can expect an average of 1-2 hours of work each week in addition to the regular course content.
This course is a part of the honors track, and intentional focus will be on the required knowledge and critical thinking and analytical skills to prepare a student to be successful in future upperlevel and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
Are you excited and ready to begin your high school courses with gusto? Welcome to English 1 Honors — a freshman-level language course focused not only on reading literature but responding as well! You will interact with classmates in multiple ways to dig a bit deeper into exciting texts including short stories, novels, and plays.
