The mission of the Beaverton School District English Language Support Program is to implement researched instructional approaches that ensure English proficiency in reading, writing, speaking and listening and are in compliance with Federal and State Guidelines. English language proficiency is defined as the acquisition of language functions and grammatical forms in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Instructional approaches which foster English language proficiency include a rigorous, thematic curriculum which is inclusive of students' unique backgrounds and cultures, group and individual learning opportunities, and intensive language development through reading and writing workshops.
This year-long course is designed to engage seniors in critical analysis and enjoyment of literature. Through talking and writing about complex literature, students deepen their understanding of how writers use language to enhance meaning and engage audiences. They write essays in and out of class. In these ways, they prepare for the Advanced Placement exam in English Literature in the spring. Those who pass the exam may qualify for advanced credit at various colleges and universities. Because of this, students in this course are expected to meet college- level expectations. .
