SALEM ACADEMY CURRICULUM GUIDE




MISSION STATEMENT

Now in its third century of sustaining a community in which girls learn best, Salem Academy remains dedicated to fostering the intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical growth of young women. Founded in 1772 by the Moravian church, Salem Academy flourishes today as an independent, college-preparatory school that celebrates its diversity and affirms each student's uniqueness. As advocates for women in leadership roles, we recognize our place in a global society and persist in our commitment to a lifetime of learning. We pledge ourselves to retain and nurture those values which encourage each student to take risks, show integrity, and discover her passion as she sets out on her own journey.

Salem Academy Curriculum


English I Ninth grade Year-long course

Overview


English I is a comprehensive study of British literature from early Anglo-Saxon epics to contemporary British drama, poetry, and fiction. Texts include Beowulf, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pygmalion, Jane Eyre, selections from The Canterbury Tales, and a survey of major British poets. Development of vocabulary is fostered through a study and application of context use, word building from Latin, Greek, and other languages as well as a comparison and contrast of words and their meanings. Grammar review of parts of speech, phrases, clauses, and sentence constructions leads to practice in careful editing but is aimed at understanding and practicing writing, reading, speaking, and listening with clarity. Research and writing skills are developed through a research paper, and MLA citation guidelines are introduced to provide responsible credit for use of borrowed information. Practice in writing for various audiences and purposes is provided as students focus on academic writing tasks. Writing strong expository paragraphs with focused topic sentences leads to practice in multi-paragraph essays.
