English 10 continues the development of writing skills started in English 9, and includes a wide variety of writing assignments, such as compare/contrast, process, analysis, archetypal stories, and vignettes. Grammar and punctuation skills are refined through written work. In addition, students write two research papers following the traditional form. Students also read three novels and explore poetry by a variety of authors. Reading comprehension and critical thinking are emphasized.
The following books are included with this course:
- English 10 Syllabus
- A Separate Peace
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
High School Teacher Manuals are available only for families who use our curriculum independently (non-enrolled). Enrolled students and families should contact their Oak Meadow teacher directly for questions regarding course work.
