Class Information

Honors English 9
In this class students will practice the advanced reading, writing, and thinking skills to prepare for the rigors of advanced placement and college courses.  Extensive required reading in the classics, contemporary literature, and nonfiction will serve as the springboard for literary analysis, process essays, on-demand timed writes, and personal response papers.  This class will require more reading, more demanding writing assignments, and homework than English 9.

Creative Writing

In this course you will enhance your creative process and fine-tune the creative writing skills you’ve been building since elementary school. You will have many opportunities to practice writing in a variety of genres, select your favorite pieces, revise and edit your work, and to share with your peers. My hope is that the strategies and skills you gain in this course can be applied to all of the writing you do for the rest of your life and that you walk away with a series of written selections which authentically capture who YOU are in this season of life.
