In ELA 10-C students will write a two part final exam. Part One of the final exam is reading comprehension and Part Two of the final exam will be Written Responses that model the format students be required to write on the Diploma Exam. Students will either write the ELA 10-C-1 exam or the ELA 10-C-2 exam depending on whether students will pursue ELA 20-1 or 20-2 at the grade eleven level. Students who write the ELA 10-C-2 exam will have received permission from their teacher and guardian(s) to be enrolled in ELA 10-C-2.
Part One: Reading Comprehension
Students will read a variety of sources in order to answer multiple choice questions on each source. Students will need to make sure that they understand and are able to demonstrate understanding of writing techniques and figurative language. Students will have the choice to write the ELA 10-C-1 Reading Comprehension exam or the ELA 10-C-2 Reading Comprehension exam. Students writing the ELA 10-C-2 exam will have obtained permission from their teacher and guardian(s).
Part Two: Written Response
Students will model the format of written response questions that they will be required to write on the Grade Twelve Diploma Exam. Students will use the format that they have practiced during the year to demonstrate their writing skills. The same marking rubrics will be used to assess writing assignments that were used for writing assignments during the course. Once again students will have the choice to write the ELA 10-C-1 exam or the ELA 10-C-2 exam. Students writing the ELA 10-C-2 exam will have obtained permission from their teacher and guardian(s).
