 This one-period course continues the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English, with increased focus on reading and writing.

The reading of content area materials and literature is expanded. Students move from literal comprehension to interpretation of reading passages, develop critical and evaluative reading skills, and apply their reading ability to solve problems. Course content is based on the state-adopted ELD Standards 2012 at the emerging/expanding proficiency level in tandem with the ELA/ELD Framework 2014
