Language Arts 9 Honors EVP

Description:

This class offers highly motivated students material that closely mirrors Language Arts 9, with emphasis on higher level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Focus is on communication through composition of well-structured paragraphs, short stories and essays. Novels and short stories are building blocks of the course. Foundational grammar and standard usage are taught through writing, as well as through the continuation of grammar practice. Vocabulary is built through exploration of literature and weekly vocabulary lessons. The curriculum in this honors class often mirrors the ENGL 100 course but with assignments being more analytical and critical thinking.
