ENGLISH I

​DESCRIPTION

In ninth grade, students will study literature through the lens of the Human Experience. English I serves as a foundation course to review previous Language Arts experiences and sets the expectation for high school English courses. There will be a heavy focus on the analysis and evaluation of all genres as they pertain to the Human Experience. Students will also exhibit their knowledge and understanding of unit studies through expository and persuasive process writing. Both formative and summative assessments will be given throughout the semester, and the course will culminate with a final exam.
