Grade 11 - English / Language Arts

English III (Credit: 1.00)

With an emphasis on building traditional and digital literacy, English III not only provides students essential practice and information to make them better communicators, but also exposes them to a variety of different literary forms and genres to encourage critical thinking and analysis. Not only will students study the language during this course, but they will also learn how to look at literature and language through a Christian worldview. As a part of a complete learning management system, Ignitia English III is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Ignitia courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

A thorough review of grammar rules, an exploration of literary work by American writers, and a focus on research skills highlight this interactive online course for high school students. Building on current language skills, students will be challenged by more challenging concepts and assignments that focus on critical thinking, analysis, and strengthening communication. Required reading for the course includes Our Town, The Old Man and the Sea, and The Book of Revelation. Optional reading and lessons are also included in the curriculum to enrich the course. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia English III enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.
