English 8 Accelerated
In English Accelerated 8 students cover the same material as English 8, but at a greater pace and depth. Increased pace allows for several more units of study in grammar, and an additional novel. Most grammar is review and focus is placed on mastering its use when writing. Expectations placed on students in this course include higher motivation and participation levels. Students are expected to be organized and place high importance on the details of literature and language. The workload for this class is also heavier.
Prerequisite: 93% in English 7 or 90% in English 7 Accelerated. Teacher recommendation required.
