How much homework is in English 3?

We estimate that the course workload will take 5–7 hours per week. During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • 40–50 pages of reading and periodic homework assignments
  • Literature quiz
  • Grammar or vocabulary quiz
  • Discussion forum posts every few weeks

Throughout the year, students complete 3 novels, 2 novellas, selections from an anthology of short stories, poems, essays, and speeches, 8 exams, 15 biweekly grammar and vocabulary quizzes, 4 short story quizzes, a multi-media project, 2 2-3 page papers, and one 4-6 page paper. Writing projects are scaffolded and include analytical, argumentative, and reflective essays, as well as more creative compositions such as short story and poetry writing.
