Spanish 3 Honors

Major Concepts/Content: Spanish 3 provides mastery and expansion of skills acquired by the students in Spanish 2. Specific content includes, but is not limited to, expansions of vocabulary and conversational skills through discussions of selected readings. Contemporary vocabulary stresses activities which are important to the everyday life of the target language-speaking people.

Speech 1 – (Art Elective)

Course Description: The purpose of this course is to develop students' beginning awareness, understanding, and application of language arts as they apply to oral communication concepts and strategies in a variety of given settings.

General Notes

The content should include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • learning and practicing a variety of speech formats
  • learning and demonstrating appropriate formal and informal public speaking techniques for audience, purpose, and occasion
  • eye contact and body movements
  • voice register and choices of language
  • use of standard English
  • using research and writing skills to support selected topics and points of view
  • across a range of disciplines
  • using a range of sources, including digital
  • collaboration amongst peers, especially during the drafting and practicing stages

Speech 2 – (Art Elective)

Course Description: The purpose of this course is to continue developing students' awareness, understanding, and application of language arts as they apply to oral communication concepts and formats.

Theatre, Cinema, and Film Production – (Art Elective)

Course Description: In Theatre, Cinema, and Film Production, a one-credit course, students explore the elements of film and cinematic techniques used by those who create movies. Students study the techniques in film that serve the story and articulate the theme. Students also prepare a comparative for theatre, film, and literature. Public performances may serve as a resource for specific instructional goals. Students may be required to attend or participate in technical work, rehearsals, and/or film production beyond the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.

English 1 and English 1 Honors

Course Description: The purpose of this course is to provide students, using texts of high complexity, integrated language arts study in reading, writing, speaking, listening, language, and literature in preparation for college and career readiness.

Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Advanced courses require a greater demand on students through increased academic rigor. Academic rigor is obtained through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted. Students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning. Honors level rigor will be achieved by increasing text complexity through text selection, focus on high-level qualitative measures, and complexity of task. Instruction will be structured to give students a deeper understanding of conceptual themes and organization within and across disciplines. Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work.

Advanced Topics in Math

Algebra 1 and Algebra 1 Honors

Course Description: This course is a rigorous in-depth study of the topics of Algebra 1. The purpose of this course is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades. The critical areas, called units, deepen and extend understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend, and students engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Algebra 1B

Course Description: This course is offered only to those students who took Algebra 1a and need Algebra 1b. This course will not be offered SY 21-22. This is the second year of a two-year Algebra 1 sequence. The purpose of this course is to develop the algebraic concepts and processes that can be used to solve a variety of real world and mathematical problems using concrete models to explain algebraic concepts. The content will include: properties of real numbers including rational and irrational numbers; algebraic notation; scientific notation; polynomials; varied means for analyzing and expressing patterns, relations, and functions; linear and quadratic functions; coordinate geometry; geometric relationships; and data analysis concepts. Manipulatives, calculators, and computers will serve as instructional tools in concept development. Algebra 1b meets 1.0 credit for math graduation requirements, but only 0.5 credits for entrance into the state university system or Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

Algebra 2 and Algebra 2 Honors

Course Description: This course is designed for students to build on their work with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions, students extend their repertoire of functions to include polynomial, rational, and radical functions. Students work closely with the expressions that define the functions and continue to expand and hone their abilities to model situations and to solve equations, including solving quadratic equations over the set of complex numbers and solving exponential equations using the properties of logarithms. The Standards for Mathematical Practice apply throughout and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.

Analysis of Functions

Course Description: One semester of this course is designed to provide students with a complete study of circular and trigonometric functions and their applications. Problem solving is emphasized throughout. The content will include identities, graphs, inverses of circular functions, particular and general solutions of trigonometric equations, and solutions of right and oblique triangles. The other semester is designed to strengthen and extend the student’s knowledge of functions and mathematical modeling. The content will include various data collection methods, analyzing data sets using statistical techniques, determining probabilities, and the study of function families. Calculators and computers will serve as instructional tools in concept development.
