Salem Academy Curriculum


English I Honors Ninth grade Year-long course

Overview



Honors English I is an accelerated survey of British literature from early Anglo-Saxon epics to contemporary British drama, poetry, and fiction. Placement in this course is determined by middle school English grades, scores on the reading comprehension and verbal sections of the SSAT, teacher recommendation, and departmental approval. 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. In addition to these texts, students will also read outside criticism. 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.
