Am I ready to take English 1: Exploring Literature & Writing?

Students need to be able to read and comprehend at a high school level. Please check the reading list to see the works we will be covering in English 1 to determine your student’s readiness. A student’s understanding of the reading material will become evident in his or her writing.

We will be doing a fair amount of writing, but we will start from the beginning in terms of how to approach, prepare, and produce a final product. Although we will begin our study of writing with basic sentences and paragraphs, and then build into essays, students should already have had some practice in basic essay writing prior to taking this course.

Still have questions if you are ready for a standard high school class? Please visit our Academic Readiness page for more information.
