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 Honors 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. In LA9 Honors-EVP you will dive a little deeper into literature, exploring questions like "What makes a story a great story?" and "What tools does a writer use to produce excellent literature?" You will explore suspenseful short stories, narrative nonfiction, poetry, and a few classic novels. 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.
