Welcome to 9th Grade English. Prepare yourself - there will be a lot of Reading and Writing done in this Class! We will be reading several (many) classroom novels, and students will be expected to have their own, self selected (minimum guidelines) library book. In addition, we will be reading from an assortment of classic Short Stories and Poems. There will also be a focus on nonfiction - speeches, essays, biographies, articles, etc.
There will be one project/research assignment each semester.
Writing - Compare/Contrast, Persuasive, Narrative, Reflective
We will be visiting the library on a weekly basis and we will be using Accelerated Reader!
