In the English 10-2 program, students will develop a variety of reading, comprehension and writing strategies and they will respond to texts at a variety of different levels of sophistication. This course sequence - 10-2, 20-2, 30-2 - satisfies the English Language Arts requirements for a high school diploma and it will prepare students for some post-secondary programs. Prerequisite: Language Arts 9: 50%. (A student that has passed/achieved ESL Level 5 may also take this course.) Students without the prerequisite must withdraw from class with no refund if they are under 20 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year.
