We will be reading Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction and Drama. There will be a variety of writing assignments, including creative, argumentative, and narrative. We will be integrating source material in various types of writing following MLA formatting standards and the mechanics of writing. The students in this class will also be working on various research and creative writing.  Other differentiated activities and group projects will also be incorporated.


    There will be one book project assigned per marking period, and students will be provided with instructions and given ample time to complete the task. All books are to be approved by the teacher.
