    English 10 R builds on the 9th grade emphasis on critical thinking, reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills adding in work with research strategies, reading comprehension, vocabulary enrichment, and SAT preparation.  Throughout the year, students practice and employ skills including:  annotation, analyzing literary elements within the text, using specific textual evidence to support an argument, seamlessly integrating quotations within their writing, and organizing essays using the writing process.  These skills are meant to support students in their journey towards college and career readiness.  The course assessment, worth 1/5 of the final grade, is a teacher constructed exam, focusing on the critical reading and writing skills mentioned above that are expected on the 11th grade English Regents exam.
