In Module 1 of Grade 10, students engage with literature and nonfiction texts, including poems, Ethan Canin's "The Palace Thief," and chapters from Amy Tan's The Joy Luck Club and H. G. Bissinger's nonfiction text Friday Night Lights. They explore how complex characters develop through their interactions with each other, and how these interactions develop central ideas such as parental and communal expectations, self-perception and performance, and competition and learning from mistakes. This module also introduces foundational protocols and routines for reading, writing, and discussion that students will continue to build upon and strengthen throughout the year. Students develop close reading skills, strengthen their writing through revisions and editing, and refine their speaking and listening skills through discussion-based assessment and evidence based collaborative analysis.
