    White, Block 4

     

    The English 4 CP curriculum was rewritten for the 2017-18 academic year (and continues to be in effect today), and the focus of this class is science fiction and fantasy.  Comprised of five eight-week units, the course is constructed, as follows:

    Unit 1 "Aliens: The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and Interstellar Conflicts"

    Unit 2 "Time Travel"

    Unit 3 "The Plague (biochemical and microbial assault)

    Unit 4 "Cybernetics, Robotics, and Artificial Intellligence"

    Unit 5 " Fantasy" (includes student's capstone project/dissertation and presentation)

    As it is designed, this course allows for full differentiation in content, process, and product for all students.  It also encourages high levels of student engagement.
