Offering a review and reinforcement of the standards and skills delivered in high school English courses, the curriculum provides students opportunities to develop skills of reading and analyzing nonfiction and fiction texts and film; writing and revising analytical, descriptive, narrative, and argumentative prose; engaging in active listening; conducting research; using sources for evidence; reviewing grammatical structures as needed; and building vocabulary. To earn a credit, students must complete 15 assignments accessed and submitted through Microsoft Teams. Students will be required to pick up materials and meet the teacher at the D2 Center on June 3 or 4 between 3 and 5 p.m.

Navigating Your Future: Begins July 6…… Last day to complete the class is July 24
Using a personalized approach, this course promotes development of a positive future identity by focusing on the student’s social, physical, mental, and financial health.

Except for the job skills and career exploration assignments, which are completed with a D2 Center Career Navigator, all assignments are accessed and submitted through Microsoft Teams.
