Course Description:
This is the first of two courses that comprise Honors English 9. In this course, the student will take an in-depth look at a variety of literature selections. In reading 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 Stephen Crane's -The Red Badge of Courage-. 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 Red Badge of Courage-. Writing instruction focuses on analytical and expository writing but also provides opportunities for the student to write creatively. The Honors course includes more rigorous curriculum and provides greater opportunities for students to explore concepts, engage in independent research, and demonstrate critical thinking skills.
