Students earn credits in English 9 through English 12, depending on their credit needs. There are many ways to earn credits. All students are required to write two essays per credit check. The format is on this web page. The final versions of the essays must be typed. We have computers at Black Rock High School for student use.
Each student has a literature workbook. Credits are earned per section identified on a slip of paper stapled on the inside of the workbook.
When students have completed their workbooks, they may move on to reading novels and completing novel packets, or completing the literature book contracts located on this web page.
English students may receive "directed instruction" credit two days per week. Attendance is very important as credit is awarded for participation and completion of directed assignments.
