Language Arts 11, First Semester (HEN3491B)

English for grade 11 is an American Literature course. The units are organized chronologically according to periods in literary history. As students read foundational works of literature and other historical documents written between 1600 and 1900, they'll review and extend skills in five domains: analyzing literature, analyzing informational text, writing, speaking and listening, and language study, which includes word knowledge and grammar skills. Each unit begins with a lesson that provides historical context for the era and introduces themes that emerged in the literature of that era. Each lesson within the unit provides students with an opportunity to review basic analysis skills before applying those skills to works of literature or historical documents. Lessons focused on more difficult historical documents include activities that help students comprehend the complex ideas in these works.Writing modes addressed in this course include narrative, reflective, persuasive, and analytical modes. Assignments emphasize the use of details, evidence, and reasoning to support ideas; writing lessons include model essays that demonstrate key features of each mode. The speaking and listening lessons covers rhetoric, the peer review or writing workshop process, and performance skills. Vocabulary development instruction is integrated into the literature and informational text lessons. Each unit ends with an authentic assessment that presents students with a real-world scenario requiring the use of some of the skills they learned in the unit.
