Oxnard Middle College has two primary English courses in the high school program, which are English 89 (9th) and English 99 (10th). In these courses, students study literature with the intent of grasping the relationships between local concerns and universal questions. Units allow for a close study of literary works, as well as consideration of historical and cultural context. Courses include study and skill development in core literature, language usage, vocabulary, writing, and reading skills, with a particular focus on written expression. By the end of grade 10, students will read and comprehend literature, including fiction, non-fiction, drama, and poetry. Students will draw evidence from literary and informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. Additionally, students will present information, findings, and supporting evidence, conveying a distinct perspective.
During 11th grade, OMC students transition to English 101 at Oxnard College with a corequisite support class at the high school level: Introduction to College Composition. In 12th grade, students take English 102 at Oxnard College to complete their English program.
