Welcome to Mrs. Hire's 9th Grade Literature Class

Welcome to Mrs. Hire's English Literature Class

Advanced Mathematical Decision Making includes the analysis of information using statistical methods and probability, modeling change and mathematical relationships, and spatial and geometric modeling for mathematical reasoning.  Students learn to become critical consumers of real-world quantitative data, knowledgeable problem solvers who use logical reasoning, and mathematical thinkers who can use their quantitative skills to solve authentic problems.  Students develop critical skills for success in college and careers including investigation, research, collaboration , and both written and oral communication of their work as they solve problems in many types of applied situations.

This is the course for AP Psych.

Mrs. Jackson's American Literature class.

The focus of Analytic Geometry on the coordinate plane is organized into 6 critical areas. Transformations on the coordinate plane provide opportunities for the formal study of congruence and similarity. The study of similarity leads to an understanding of right triangle trigonometry and connects to quadratics through Pythagorean relationships. The study of circles uses similarity and congruence to develop basic theorems relating circles and lines. The need for extending the set of rational numbers arises and real and complex numbers are introduced so that all quadratic equations can be solved. Quadratic expressions, equations and functions are developed, comparing their characteristics and behavior to those of linear and exponential relationships from Coordinate Algebra. Circles return with their quadratic algebraic representations on the coordinate plane. The link between probability and data is explored through conditional probability. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations. Additional information for this course can be found on the Georgia Department of Education Website.

This is the the World History course for all of Coach Burton's classes.

The Current Issues course will deal the issues and themes that impact our world today. Social, Political, Economic and Cultural themes will form the framework for the course.

Explore different modes of writing by focusing heavily on the history and development of literature in America by reading short stories, novels, myths, poetry, drama, & nonfiction.  Students will also explore these genres in their own writing.  Writing will be done formally & informally, using the writing process: planning, drafting, revising, editing, & proofreading.  Students will also be expected to verbalize their findings in both oral & written responses to the literature we read.  Vocabulary & genre will be emphasized when being evaluated.  In addition to focusing on literature, this class will also examine informational texts, evaluating how we encounter these in our daily lives and the effect these have on society.   

British literature offers a chronological study of British literature for students who are working at or above grade level. Emphasis will be on reading, writing, speaking, listening, critical thinking skills, and vocabulary. This class will also cover grammar, mechanics, and usage. The Senior Project will be an integral part of this course, and its completion is required in order to receive credit for the course.

This course is designed to function as a web-hybrid course.  Web-Hybrid courses blend on-campus instruction with web-based instructional activities.  Students meet on campus and then participate in learning activities and/or reinforcement activities online.  Web-hybrid courses create flexible learning options while allowing students to meet face-to-face with instructors and other students.

The Introduction to Drafting and Design course is the foundational course under the Architectural Drawing and Design pathway and prepares students for a pursuit of any career in the field of construction. The course provides the basic knowledge to function safely on or around a construction site and in industry in general. Students will have the option for an Industry Certification in the Pathway Core. Pre-requisite for this course is advisor approval.

AP Computer Science A emphasizes object oriented programming methodology with a concentration on problem solving and algorithm\ development and is meant to be the equivalent of a first-semester college-level course in Computer Science.  It also includes the study of data structures, design, and abstraction, but these topics are not covered to the extent that they are in Computer Science AB.

The goal of this course is to provide all students with an introduction to the principles of computer science and its place in the modern world. This course should also help students to use computers effectively in their lives, thus providing a foundation for successfully integrating their own interests and careers with the resources of a technological society.

How can computing change the world? What is computer science? Engage your creativity, demonstrate and build your problem solving ability all while connecting the relevance of computer science to the society! Computer Science (CS) Principles is an intellectually rich and engaging course that is focused on building a solid understanding and foundation in computer science. This course emphasizes the content, practices, thinking and skills central to the discipline of computer science. Through both its content and pedagogy, this course aims to appeal to a broad audience. The focus of this course will fall into these computational thinking practices: connecting computing, developing computational artifacts, abstracting, analyzing problems and artifacts, communicating, and collaborating.

Various forms of technologies will be used to expose students to resources and application of computer science. Professional communication skills and practices, problem-solving, ethical and legal issues, and the impact of effective presentation skills are enhanced in this course to prepare students to be college and career ready. Employability skills are integrated into activities, tasks, and projects throughout the course standards to demonstrate the skills required by business and industry. 

Are you ready to design and develop? The course is designed for high school students to strategize, design, and develop games and mobile and desktop applications that can be produced in the real world. Students will learn about life-cycles of project development and use models to develop applications. Attention will be placed on how user interfaces affect the usability and effectiveness of a game or an application. Programming constructs will be employed which will allow students’ applications to interact with “real world,” stimuli. The course exposes students to privacy, legality, and security considerations with regards to the software industry.

Men do change, and change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass. ~ John Steinbeck

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. 
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.” 

- Walt Whitman

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Welcome to British Literature!

Spring Semester Moodle Site. 

This course is designed for 9th grade students who desire to pursue an advanced course of study in high school English. It is a world literature course exploring various literary genres such as novel, short story, poetry, non-fiction, and drama with intense emphasis on writing and reading activities; the course will also cover grammar, MLA research and vocabulary.

The course allows teachers and students to gain an understanding and appreciation of our own cultures, cultural values, and influences upon our perspectives. We will explore various works of fiction (novels, poetry and short stories) and nonfiction (essays, speeches and articles) written by authors about a variety of cultures and we will reflect and respond to these pieces.

 In this course, we will discuss and analyze through written, verbal and non-verbal methods.  Presentation, discussion and collaboration are major components of this course, which includes Senior Project requirements.
