Course Overview

A year one can expect a different experience in the ELA classroom than many students in the county.  At BCEC we are committed to the idea that the communication skills gained in English Language Arts are some of the most essential skills needed to navigate college and beyond.  As such, English is a year long class.  The first semester is called College Ready Literacy, and the graphic below provides an overview of the components of which it is comprised.  For more specific information about policies and expectations, please take a look at the syllabus linked here.

The second semester is called Honors English 1.  This class is more typical of the English classes most students have had and culminates in a North Carolina Final Exam.  Please take a look at the syllabus linked here for more details.  The above components will continue to be stressed throughout this semester as well.
