Description: The English 11 Workshop continues to support students in Common Core English language arts curriculum. Instruction focuses on use of reading strategies to deconstruct meaning of challenging texts, including works of fiction and nonfiction. It also emphasizes use of textual evidence and multiple sources to develop argumentation texts. These literacy activities serve to further build students’ academic and conceptual vocabulary. Ultimately, the English 11 Workshop prepares students for the New York State Examination in English Language Arts Common Core and the redesigned SAT, which eleventh grade students are expected to take.
