Course Description:
This is the first of two courses that comprise English 9. In this course, the student will take an in-depth look at a variety of literature selections. In reading and responding to these diverse selections, the student will gain a thorough understanding of fiction and nonfiction genres, including short stories, essays, poetry, and drama. The student will also read Jack London's -The Call of the Wild-. This selection enables the student to explore universal themes and make connections between the characters' experiences and his own. Harper Lee's -To Kill a Mockingbird- may be read instead of -The Call of the Wild-. Writing instruction focuses on analytical and expository writing but also provides opportunities for the student to write creatively.
