IB MYP Tenth Grade English

Year Long

Prerequisite(s): None

Grade 10

Continuing to build on the skills in ninth grade, students will be guided to consider and respond to “essential questions”. Students will be challenged to consider how their use of Language A, English, can change their lives. Readings that provide multiple perspectives, particularly those from an international stance, will help students consider human issues embedded in the essential questions. In addition, preparation for the Minnesota standards for English Language Arts will be further augmented. Emphasis will be placed on developing strategies for active, effective reading. Overall, the philosophy of study will emphasize holistic learning, intercultural awareness, and developing communication skills.
