Our course outlines are provided to parents at the beginning of the school year. They describe the courses a student in the grade will enroll in, what units will be covered, how the assessments will be given, IB aims and objectives, and DCPS standards. Each outline was developed by Deal teachers. In some cases, courses and teams may provided additional information to the students and parents, either on line or in paper form, that describe particular grading practices, team expectations, and other important policies. These outlines are revised each year (and on occasion during the school year), so for this school year they should be seen as a snapshot of the courses. New course outlines, with revised unit topics, reading lists, and assessments, will be posted during the summer and made available to parents at the beginning of school year.
