Welcome to Grade 9 and 10 Pre Advanced Placement English!
Students who choose ENG 1DP and ENG 2DP are interested in developing significant critical thinking, argumentation, and language skills. Successful students will then move into ENG 3UP and ENG 4UP to directly prepare for the AP Literature and AP Language Exams.
In addition to fulfilling the curriculum requirements of Grade 9 Academic English and Grade 10 Academic English, students will also complete three challenging bonus assignments. Students may take the average of their bonus assignments and add it to their mark at the end of the semester. Students should write all of the assignments to maximize both their learning and preparation for Grade 11 and 12.
