MYP Year 5 English

Thursday, October 31, 2013

4th Hour:  10th grade English

CIS is on and accelerated schedule, so most of the literature studied this year will be American literature. English Language and Literature covers three areas of study in IB which we will be working on all year:

  •  Content
  •  Organization
  •  Language and Style

We will be studying various American novels, drama,  poetry, and non-fiction. We will also be working on writing throughout the year.  Students will have at least one weekly writing assignment (WWA), which will deal with their personal experiences dealing with a theme, conflict, or idea coming from the literature we are currently studying.   They will also be working on expository writing as well. We will study the grammar and mechanics largely through the student’s own writing and DLPs (Daily Language Practice).

I am enjoying my first year at CIS thoroughly.  If you have questions, concerns, or just want to chat, please feel free to contact me at
