Through the close reading of selected texts, students will deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism and tone. Students will initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions and develop fundamental communication skills in order to effectively share reasoning and varied perspectives during oral presentations. This course will prepare students for the AP English examinations. 10LA - LA Elective12th;#1 yearLanguage ArtsN/ANohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/1920%20Course%20Catalog/AP%20Literature%20and%20Composition%20wt.docx

Students will critically examine current education issues that affect their lives, their local community, and P-12 classrooms throughout the state and the country. Throughout this course we will examine achievement data (local, state and national) by gender, race, ethnicity, English language proficiency, and program type (gifted/ talented, special education, honors, Advanced Placement, etc.) and use this analysis to generate questions, offer solutions, and engage in critical dialogue about educational inequalities and educational justice. Ultimately, the purpose of this course is twofold: First, the course is designed to encourage high school students to consider teaching and related fields as a viable and important career choice. The course is also designed to provide students with “college knowledge”. That is, students will: a) gain an appreciation of the importance of academic success; b) be provided with supports and mentors to help achieve greater academic success; and c) gain an understanding of how to navigate the college and scholarship search and application process – including information for students who will be applying as international students. 10Practical Arts11th;#12th;#1 yearPractical ExperiencesHospitality, Human Services & EducationNohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/1920%20Course%20Catalog/Pathways2Teaching.docx
