Pre-Advanced English

Pre-AP  English 9 is available to ambitious students seeking a classroom where there is rigor and complexity beyond what is found in the regular junior high classroom. It is a year long, integrated course focused on world studies linked through content, theme, and skill development with the social studies curriculum. Students will examine a number of literary genres and authors as well as expand writing skills through practice on various modes and forms.  Course outcomes will emphasize the connection between literature, culture, and human events.  Students will be expected to read and write extensively as well as complete additional research projects and reports.
