Deerstream will offer two high school courses for 2019-2020.
English is offered as a full year, comprehensive course for 9th and 10th graders. Students will read a variety of literature and respond with increasing depth of literary knowledge and sophistication of thought. After working independently at home throughout the week, class discussions will provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas. Writing assignments will require students to respond to literature with clarity, thoughtfulness, organization, and style. Students will be challenged and inspired to grow as high school level readers and writers as they progress through the year.
High school English will meet from 9:15 am to 12:15 pm on Mondays.
Chemistry is the study of matter and its components and their interactions. This course is a college-preparatory introductory chemistry class. Homework will average 4-5 hours a week outside of class time. Students are expected to come prepared to each class with completed work, to attend class sessions and to participate in class discussions and labs. Class sessions will feature labs and activities to help cement the students’ knowledge of the material. Students will receive a course grade based on homework, classwork, quizzes, and tests.
Prerequisite: Algebra I
High school chemistry will meet from 9:15 am to 12:15 pm on Wednesdays.
