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 EVP)
English 1 Honors EVP explores literature and composition through hands-on collaborative learning. As an Honor Student, you will dive deeper into short stories, poetry, nonfiction, novels, and drama to discover universal themes that relate to real-live experiences while practicing critical thinking skills such as analysis and evaluation. Grammar and vocabulary instruction are integrated into the weekly instruction, and are designed to help students’ writing grow in depth and complexity. As part of the EVP program, students will attend one live class (requried) each week that is rooted in discussion and interactive learning. Students will have weekly structured assignments that facilitate a traditional coursework schedule.
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 upper level and Advanced Placement® (AP®) courses.

Do you enjoy the flexibility that online school offers but miss the face-to-face interaction with your teacher and classmates? Then English 1 Honors EVP is the place for you. As part of your coursework, English 1 EVP meets weekly in a live video-conference to discuss literature, practice skills, and play engaging review games. In English 1 Honors-EVP you will dive a little deeper into literature, exploring questions like “What makes a story a great story?” and “What tools does a writer use to produce excellent literature?” You will explore suspenseful short stories, narrative nonfiction, poetry, and a few classic novels. As we read and write together, you are given opportunities to apply your learning from real-world authors while you build your language skills and develop strong friendships along the way!
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
The EVP sessions were helpful. I really enjoyed group discussions.
