FROM THE TEACHER

Do you enjoy the flexibility that online school offers but miss the face-to-face interaction with your teacher and classmates? Then Language Arts 9 EVP is the place for you. As part of your coursework, LA9-EVP meets weekly in a live video-conference to discuss literature, practice skills, and play engaging review games. You will explore suspenseful short stories, narrative nonfiction, poetry and a few classic novels while building strong skills in discussion and collaborative learning.. As we read and write together, you are given opportunities to apply your learning from real-world authors while you build your language skills and develop strong friendships along the way!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

I love the EVP classes because there are firm due dates so you cannot procrastinate doing assignments.

I thought in the beginning that it was going to be another boring English class, but I was pleasantly surprised. The class is actually really fun and interesting.
