General Course Information and Notes

VERSION DESCRIPTION

This course is focused on the advanced and complex use of correct and effective language and organizational skills in preparing, delivering, and evaluating argument and debate. Students will critique debates, paying attention to content, organization, language, and delivery style, and produce and present complex, well-structured, developed arguments, applying oral communication concepts and strategies for public debate in a variety of given settings. Some work outside of the regular school day may be required.


GENERAL NOTES

English Language Arts is not a discrete set of skills, but a rich discipline with meaningful, significant content, the knowledge of which helps all students actively and fully participate in our society. Standards should not stand alone as a separate focus for instruction, but should be combined purposefully.

The content should include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • delivering and analyzing a variety of argument and debate formats such as
    • Lincoln-Douglas
    • team debate
    • extemporaneous
  • delineating and evaluating the argument and specific claims in an oral or written text by
    • citing specific text evidence
    • assessing the validity of the evidence and soundness of the reasoning
    • determining the sufficiency of evidence for success
    • recognizing when irrelevant evidence or faulty reasoning is introduced
  • demonstrating appropriate formal and informal public speaking techniques for audience, purpose, and occasion
    • eye contact and body movements
    • voice register and choices of language
    • use of standard English
  • using research and writing skills to support selected topics and points of view
    • across a range of disciplines
    • using a range of sources, including digital
  • assessing the veracity of claims and the reliability of sources
    • determining different types of evidence (e.g., documentary evidence in the social sciences, experimental evidence in the realm of natural sciences)
    • determining reliable print and digital sources
  • demonstrating use of techniques for timing and judging debates and other forensic activities
  • collaboration amongst peers, especially during the drafting and practicing stages

 

Honors and Advanced Level Course Note: Advanced courses require a greater demand on students through increased academic rigor.  Academic rigor is obtained through the application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-faceted.  Students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning. Honors level rigor will be achieved by increasing text complexity through text selection, focus on high-level qualitative measures, and complexity of task. Instruction will be structured to give students a deeper understanding of conceptual themes and organization within and across disciplines. Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work.

English Language Development ELD Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English language learners (ELL) to communicate information, ideas and concepts for academic success in the content area of Language Arts. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL’s need for communication and social skills.
