During the year, students will read, discuss, and interact with a variety of literature. We will be focusing on grammar, writing, and literature from a number of different authors and sources. Students will integrate literature with art, history, and technology. Students will survey different types of literature, and will write for a variety of purposes, including impromptu and extended assignments to encourage analysis, research, and higher order thinking skills. Students will also work individually and in groups to improve listening and thinking skills, on a variety of projects.
