English IV Syllabus


Academic standards, chosen by the Tennessee State Board of Education, provide a common set of expectations for what students should know and be able to do at the end of a specific grade or course. Local school districts determine the order in which these state-mandated standards are addressed in their schools. For a breakdown of standard pacing and course objectives for English IV students in the Clarksville Montgomery County School System, please visit the Curriculum Navigator on the CMCSS homepage found at:

It is the policy of the Clarksville Montgomery County School System to follow the dictates of state statues in the selection and use of all instructional materials. Parents or legal guardians may request to review any instructional materials used in the classroom of the parent or legal guardian’s child following the guideline set forth in Instructional Policy INS-A073 found at:
