Introduction to 10th Grade


In grade 10, students are exposed to a wide variety of genre and authors, deepening their ability to read, understand, and analyze complex text. Through discussion and writing, students practice their use of academic English and utilize the right mode of speech or language when speaking or writing. Students evaluate how historical, cultural, and/or global perspectives affect author’s style and reader’s interpretations. Students continue to practice their ability to analyze complex text for author’s style. Students engage in all modes of writing including informative, argumentative, and embedded narrative when appropriate. Students engage in research by formulating questions, evaluating resources, and integrating information into their own writing using appropriate citation style.
