York Community High School

English 9 Honors

Grade9/ Full Year High Weighted Course - 2.0 credits

Prerequisite:  Enrollment by the English department in conjunction with the 9th grade placement process


English 9 Honors is a pre-Advanced Placement course that is designed to begin preparing students for the Advanced Placement Language and Composition exam as juniors and the advanced Placement Literature and Composition Exam as seniors.


This course requires students to demonstrate a sophisticated ability to read and analyze texts and examine not only how they inform a response to inquiry questions, but also how the author has utilized characterization, setting, and point of view, as well as specific literary choices to craft his or her bias or meaning.  Expectations of E9H students include analysis of more than one text concurrently; students will be responsible for reading both an in-class and out-of-class text simultaneously. E9H also distinguishes itself from English 9 in that English 9 Honors requires daily participation in whole and small group class discussions and quicker acquisition of skill targets or objectives—especially in the area of writing.
