Students will study and apply the concepts and genres of literature as they read selections from across time periods and cultures. Students will apply grammar rules and acquire new vocabulary, while analyzing classic and contemporary fiction and nonfiction texts and composing narrative, expository, and argumentative writings. English Language Development is a focus of this course. Both the Arizona Academic Standards and English Language Proficiency Standards are used as the basis for instruction.
Requested competency code:
Per ABOR Requirement: "English must include literature and have a substantial emphasis on grammar and composition. Courses such as journalism, business communications, and speech, for example may improve a student’s ability in English, but they are not devoted exclusively to the study of English and may not be substituted for a regular English course.https://public.azregents.edu/Policy%20Manual/2-121-Undergraduate%20Admission.pdf"
