  • Course Description: Designed to support students with emotional disabilities, this course studies various short stories, poetry, essays, and plays. The course engages the student in evaluation, discussions, writing, and research. Students develop analytical skills, evaluate literary criticism, and further understanding of literary devices in order to respond critically to the literature read. Students follow the general education English 11 curriculum with modified assignments at a more individualized pace. These smaller classes provide more step-by-step instruction, in-class reading, development of concrete reading skills, and some independent reading. Students are provided a variety of opportunities to expand their vocabulary and refine their overall communication skills.
