High school English

How many standards are you expected to hit within a year? Do you hit every single one each year or divide between 9&10/11-12?

9th grade hits every standard- some more explicitly than others then 10th grade hits the ones that were not as explicitly taught

We divided them between 9/10, 11 and 12 does their own thing. Senior year is mostly electives. I teach mainly 9th and we have priority standards. We cover theme, narrative writing, and argumentative writing.

I may or may not hit all the standards. I don’t know because I don’t teach to them. I know, I know, I know! It’s a risky move. I don’t teach standards- I teach students. I teach them reading, writing, listening, speaking, thinking, emoting, caring, analyzing, formulating, comparing, tracing, evaluating, describing...pick a powerful word and I teach them that. I don’t worry about those broad, ambiguous standards. But then, I have tenure.

Tenure is now against state law in Michigan, has been for more than seven years.
