All students need to check out a school laptop. The fee can be paid by cash, check, or RevoPay. We will be accessing course materials via Schoology, most days of the week.
Welcome to SREB/Essentials for College Literacy!
SREB/Essentials for College Literacy WILL serve as your Senior English credit.
This course is different from a traditional English course. We will not have a textbook. Instead, we will be working from a digital workbook on your school laptop, and submitting our work via Schoology.
The course is divided into units from several content areas: English Language Arts, History, and Science. For example, our first unit is an ELA unit. We will be reading The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, by Nicholas Carr, as the basis for the unit. Our second unit is a History unit, focusing on the Civil Rights Era of U.S. History. Our third unit is a Science unit, focusing on DNA. Each unit consists of a variety of texts, and culminates in a final research-based project.
