English I is the first of a series of four comprehensive English classes which includes all of the following: grammar, poetry, literature, writing, and vocabulary. It is designed for late elementary schoolers and early middle schoolers. Prerequisite skills for this class include (1) the ability to recognize the basic parts of speech—nouns and verbs, (2) the ability to read at grade level, (3) the ability to write a complete sentence. This class also builds English skills from the basics and is designed to flow into the next course (English II). Grades 4th to 7th
