9th Grade English
English I is comprised of a variety of literature and expository text studies, writing activities, vocabulary strategies, grammar skills, and communication lessons. English I integrates the study of selected world literature with comprehensive grammar, usage, and composition skills. Writing will emphasize sound and varied sentence structure and patterns, the logical progression and completeness of the paragraph, and the composition of multiple-paragraph essays. A conventional, comprehensive study of grammar, usage, and mechanics will give students ample practice in honing their proficiency in capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and agreement rules of standard usage. The study of world literature includes the short story, drama, and the novel. Short stories will focus on the basic literary elements exhibited by various world authors, using the anthology text as a source. Vocabulary study will also be incorporated throughout the course, with primary focus on words encountered in the literature selections. Likewise, improved oral communication and basic research skills will be covered within the context of literature and composition.
