Teaching English-Level 1 High School
This course provides the tools, strategies and instructional materials to equip you for teaching this subject and preparing your students through lessons in a collection of selected readings that is a diverse mix of familiar classics and contemporary voices, organized by genre and by theme. Reading skills, such as making inferences, determining the main idea, and summarizing, are taught and reinforced. The writing strand guides students step-by-step through the writing process, from pre-writing strategies through expository narrative, description and argumentation. This course will support the new teacher, an out-of-field assignment or the experienced teacher wishing to introduce additional materials to the curriculum.
