Applied English

Course Description

Applied English is an individualized modified curriculum based on IEP.

This course concentrates on the fundamental language skills of reading, writing, conventions of written and oral language, research, and listening/speaking in an effort to build a foundation for student success. Students practice both reading and writing as a process and perform an array of reading strategies as they work to become proficient in understanding and responding appropriately to a variety of texts. Students refine their reading comprehension skills through the study of fiction, literary nonfiction,

poetry, drama, and informational text throughout the year. Students write for varied audiences and purposes and work to develop ideas, voice, word choice, fluency and organization in their writing while applying conventions of the English language. Throughout the year, students develop skills to enhance media literacy.
