This freshman-level course is designed to lay the foundation for successful high school writing and exploration of literature. The goal of this course is to engage students in a rigorous curriculum of reading, writing, analysis of literature, grammar, and spelling. The literature in this course includes the study of drama, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and novels. Through the close readings of theses selections, students will consider a work's structure, style, themes, and use of figurative language. Through taking this course, students will also continue to develop and refine their skills in composition, test-taking, critical thinking, and public speaking. In addition, students will be required to write a research paper that utilizes MLA format. The course will also include analytical, persuasive, and expository writing.
