English I (9th Grade)

Welcome to 9th Grade English!  Although this is a general English class, the work you do for this class is designed to start preparing you for the level of work you can expect from the AP English courses you take later in high school.

The class is generally divided into four areas:

  • Grammar
  • Literature--American literature and one Shakespeare play
  • Spelling-Vocabulary, with an emphasis on literary and SAT terms
  • Journalism--expository, technical, and persuasive writing

Homework for this class can be found under the "Things to Do" link on the menu.  Both group and individual projects, such as book reports, research paper, and literature related activities, will completed throughout the year.
