  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • 40–50 pages of reading and periodic homework assignments

  • 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.
