In this course, students explore the theme of heroes in literature and apply the concept of a hero's journey to their own life. Students apply literacy skills and strategies, complete application and writing assignments, and practice grammar and usage skills. This is the first course in a two-part Tenth-Grade English series. This course also encompasses the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
