Syllabus for all 10th Grade Classes

Hello, my job is to teach students how to become better readers and writers during our time together in the 10th grade.
 
English 2 and English 2 Honors is the required English course for 10th grade students in the state of Florida.  All students are required to develop certain reading and writing skills based on the state standards.  
 
Each student must take a two part state exam called the FSA ELA Exam during this school year, and each student is required to pass this exam in order to graduate from high school; however, the exam has no impact on the grade the student will receive in the class.  Part one of the FSA is a writing test administered during the first week of April, and the second part of the FSA is a two day reading test administered during the first week of May.
 
If we commit to working everyday and reading our materials and AR books outside of class, we can all find great success this year.
 
Thank you
 
Philip Jones
