English 9 Intensive
English 9 Intensive is a comprehensive reading intervention course specifically designed to accelerate reading and academic achievement for students and provide them with an introduction to a rigorous English Language Arts curriculum. Designed as an intensive intervention, it is expanded into a double block period to meet course requirements and Common Core State Standards for English 9 along with the Essential Program Components (EPC) for Intensive English Language Arts instruction. The course is structured to provide instruction based on Scholastic’s READ 180 program and core literature to provide reading comprehension strategies, approaches to essay writing, and vocabulary development skills to students, as well as literary analysis skills and strategies. Scholastic’s READ 180 intervention program is one of California’s State Board Adopted Instructional Materials Programs as well. Notably, English 9 Intensive provides at-risk students the opportunity to build strong literacy skills while remaining on track for university admittance.
