Independent Studies in English
Independent Studies in English is a state-approved credit for graduation designed to help students improve in all areas of English language acquisition: reading, vocabulary, writing, speaking and listening – skills that benefit students in all classes. Areas of study:
- Language—Students review basic English sentence elements and structure, practice with sentence patterns and verb forms for expressing a variety of time situations.
- Reading—Reading is done silently for comprehension and aloud for pronunciation and inflection practice. Reading helps students increase vocabulary through context clues. Writing Writing skills are developed with a variety of writing assignments to practice description, spatial organization, narrative, comparison and contrast, and supporting an opinion.
