HONORS courses will offer an additional layer of depth and complexity applied to the standard core content alongside the high expectations and authentic learning experiences found in all LISD courses. Depth and complexity applied to the standard curriculum offers rich learning experiences for students interested in taking on the challenge of advanced coursework. In English 1 GT Honors, students expand their skills in writing and reading through an integrated study of reading, writing, speaking, and purposeful collaboration. Students, both independently and collaboratively, will engage in ongoing inquiry and research processes; analyze texts across genres through a variety of critical lenses; establish meaningful positions through formal and informal writing; and have frequent opportunities to engage with a variety of self-selected texts that build their critical thinking skills and personal enjoyment for reading.
