English 10
Instructor: Mr. Tacsik   
English 10A is a required five-credit semester course that fulfills the college and ninth grade graduation requirements for English. The 10th grade course introduces students to various genres of literature with writing exercises linked to the reading selections. Through the benchmark and core assignments, designed to correspond to the California State Content Standards for English/Language Arts, students learn literary analysis skills, with particular emphasis on character development and conflict. Students learn to write expository, analytical essays about literature, to practice the fundamentals of research, and to become more skilled in oral expression.

Man and Society: The effects of language, media, propaganda, and culture on our world view.
Literary Focus: Analyzing authors’ stylistic choices to reflect their attitude towards their subject, audience, or theme. Examining the effects of propaganda, rhetorical devices, diction choices, and figurative language on the individual in a social context.

Week 3 Grades
I've updated the grade book for Weeks 1-3 of this semester. If you notice that your overall grade is noticeably low, it is probably because you have a single missing assignment in a grading category. So, right now, any missing assignments lower your grade quite a bit. Remember, any missing work can be made up for half-credit, just turn in the assignment or meet with me during nutrition or lunch to get make-up assignment instructions that you may not have.
