English 9/10 is divided into four units, covering multiple genres and writings throughout history and an end of course portfolio. Students will analyze and discuss a variety of classical, contemporary, and informational literature, as well as write argumentative, informative, and narrative essays. Students will have opportunities to interact with the texts and writings, with their peers and instructor in group settings (if available), and independently throughout the course. Students in English 9/10 should read a variety of rich texts, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc. Students will also focus on the writing process by working with graphic organizers, drafting, revising, conferencing, revising, and creating a final product.
Because this class meets one hour a week, students are strongly encouraged to set up times for private tutoring with Dr. Brown as needed. It's really nice to have the class discussion one day a week and completely personalized attention for another! Dr. Brown can commit to a regular schedule (i.e., every Tuesday at the same hour throughout the semester), or set up a limited run of tutoring as needed.
|Class size||3-10 students|
Paper and pencil to take notes
Notebook for journaling
A copy of the class text for the first part of the semester
A copy of your personal choice text for the second part of the semester
About the Instructor
I believe that the relationship between teacher and student is the most important aspect of good education. I also believe in the importance of good questions to spark the mind of the student. I prefer discussions to lectures, and I aim to make classes and tutoring sessions student-centered and interactive.
